  8. Join the 2022 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Team!

    Ohio State ATI Students:

     I’m looking for students interested in being part of the 2022 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging team.  I need to determine interest now so we can begin practicing during spring semester.  At least 3 students, preferably 4, are needed for a team.  Any Ohio State ATI student, not just dairy students, can be part of the Dairy Cattle Judging team.  Students must be full-time students in “good standing” to be part of the team.  Hopefully, COVID conditions will allow a judging team in 2022. 

    A group of people posing for a photoDescription automatically generatedThis year, the potential contests are Eastern States Exposition (Massachusetts in September), Pennsylvania All-American (Pennsylvania in September), World Dairy Expo (Wisconsin in late September – early October), and the North American International Livestock Exposition (Kentucky in November).  Ohio State ATI competes in the 2-year college/university division at these contests.   Each contest is different, but typically students will need to judge placing classes and give oral reasons at each contest.  At World Dairy Expo, there is a practical contest that includes linear scoring, registered heifers, commercial heifers, and mating recommendation classes.


    Please reply to me by sending an email to thornton.5@osu.edu to let me know if you are interested in participating with the 2022 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging team.  Please include in your email your contact information:  preferred email, phone number (cell and/or home), and address.  If there is enough interest (at least 3 students), a meeting will be scheduled to discuss the specifics:  time commitment, funding, practices, etc.   

    PLEASE REPLY BY Friday, January 21, 2022 to allow time to schedule the organizational meeting.


    Mr. Thornton
