  9. Calling All Students Interested in the 2021 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Team

    I’m looking for students interested in being part of the 2021 Ohio State ATI Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging team if COVID conditions are such that will allow university travel and contests to be held in the last half of 2021.  I need to determine interest now so that we are ready to “go” if conditions permit.  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 have to be full-time students in “good standing” to be part of the team.

    This 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 at thornton.5@osu.edu and let me know if you are interested in participating with the 2021 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 Monday, January 25, 2021 to allow time for me to schedule the organizational meeting.
