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, Floriculture, Horse Judging, Livestock Judging, Meat Judging, Poultry Judging, Wildlife Judging, and Wool Judging.
More rules and information can be found in the Livestock Premium List.
