Sit around your local grain elevator or coffee shop long enough, and every farmer Joe, Frank and Henry will tell you that he raises the greatest livestock in the nation. There isn’t a bias in that – is there?

For the SDSU Intercollegiate Livestock Judging Team, sorting through the biases at competitions across the country is all a part of the game. Simply marking a card “4321” and presenting oral reasons isn’t going to cut it. Today’s livestock judgers are prepared to set biases aside and decide what pigs, sheep and cattle are actually at the top and which ones fall quickly to the bottom.
