Junior Judging Contests are popular to Texas 4-H and FFA participants because of their value in terms of developing critical thinking and communication skills. A broad variety of contests are hosted each year at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo to meet the diverse interests of our exhibitors. Exhibitors may compete as individuals or in teams in the following contests: Consumer Decision Making, Dairy Judging, Horse Judging, Livestock Judging, Meat Judging, Poultry Judging, Wildlife Habitat, and Wool Judging.

More rules and information can be found in the Livestock Premium List.
