The Iowa State 4H/FFA Meat Judging Contest returned to a face-to-face event on Saturday, August 28, 2021. Nearly 75 meat judgers, agricultural education instructors, and 4-H leaders, and volunteers filled the Iowa State University Meat Lab for a contest that included beef, pork, and lamb carcasses, as well as beef, pork, and lamb wholesale and/or retail cuts.
In the FFA division, the South O’Brien FFA Chapter in Paullina, was named the champion team. Coached by Mr. Eric Kumm, members included Kyan Kruse, Hudson Oolman, Leo Sells, and Claire Wagner. They will represent Iowa at the National FFA Competition this fall in Indianapolis, IN.
