Judging teams

The University of Wyoming Animal Science Department and UW College of Agriculture places very special emphasis on its collegiate judging teams. We are extremely proud to be one of only a few universities in the U.S. to offer undergraduate students the chance to participate on three judging teams – livestock, meat, and wool. We prioritize our judging teams because we realize the immense value these opportunities lend us in developing skilled, professional, and well-rounded students. Because the companies hiring our students appreciate potential employees who can dedicate themselves to their work, manage time, be confident in the decisions they make, and be an effective communicator, we believe it is of utmost importance to continually promote and support these teams in the UW Animal Science department. Our judging team history dates back as early as 1920, and we look forward to fielding nationally competitive teams for many more years to come.
