    Livestock Judging

    History runs deep in livestock judging at South Dakota State University. As you walk down the hallway in the Animal Science Complex, you can find pictures of past judging teams. Within those pictures you can find many industry leaders, breed association executive secretaries, and prominent producers within the state and across the country. Past team members claim that participating on a judging team was one of the most beneficial college experiences they had. 

    Employers have continuously sought out members of livestock judging teams because of the attributes they develop while participating on the judging team, such as the ability to make decisions, think quickly and aggressively, work under pressure, and communicate effectively.


    The SDSU Livestock Judging team participates at the following contests throughout the year: 

    • National Western Stock Show, Denver, Colo.  
    • Sioux Empire Show, Sioux Falls, S.D.   
    • Iowa Beef Expo, Des Moines, Iowa   
    • National Meat Animal Evaluation Contest, St. Joseph, Mo.   
    • National Barrow Show, Austin, Minn.   
    • Mid-America, Wichita, Kan.
    • American Royal, Kansas City, Mo.   
    • The national contest at the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Ky.

    2016 Livestock Judging Team in Denver

    Congratulaitons to the team being 3rd in the carload contest

    brother Tony Munsterteiger is on the team this year bottom right 


         The team finished their year today with a 10th place finish at the national contest held in Louisville. Being on a livestock judging team takes a tremendous amount of work and time spent in a 15 passenger van traveling across the country. This years team is extremely talented and made up of all 4 year university students from South Dakota and Minnesota. We couldn't be more proud of their finish and more importantly how much they have matured and grown over the year. We thank them for their time their want to be apart of the Jackrabbit tradition. 

    The 2015 team had two AGR brothers on it Connor Hoff and Tom Harris





    This list will obviously be missing many at first if you could help us by letting us know if you or any other brother was on a team that would be great.
