Livestock Bowl is a quiz competition where all the questions are about beef, sheep, swine, and meat goat topics and students use a buzzer in order to answer the questions.

Skillathon contest is made up of a written quiz and learning stations such as breed identification, feed identification, equipment identification as well as some team activities such as demonstrating evaluation skills.

Competition in Quiz Bowl & Skillathon encourages members to develop a more complete knowledge of animals and related subjects.  This contest provides an educational program for all project members, including those who may not own a project animal, and provides a way to develop self-confidence.  These programs are a great parallel to some similar programs that breed associations and other organizations conduct.

Registration Deadline:  February 21, 2020, 5:00 pm.  Registrations must be emailed.
