The Meat Animal Evaluation Contest rotates between host universities across the country. The competition includes live market animal carcass predictions and pricing, breeding animal evaluation, meat judging, and communications and truly serves as a capstone judging experience for students with its incorporation of so many industry-applicable concepts. Team members can be of any classification, but many students that compete in this contest have already demonstrated excellence in animal and/or meat evaluation. This team competes in just one official contest each year.
