Do you find it hard to have a variety of animals for practicing? The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center has a program available for you! The Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center is hosting an Independent Study Livestock Judging Clinic. The Center plans to purchase three classes of market hogs and three classes of market lambs at the GA National Fair. We will also have three classes of heifers from the Center’s herd. The animals will be penned by class and prejudged. Placing will be available upon arrival. The animals will be available from Monday October 19, 2009 – Friday November 20, 2009 (excluding Sundays). You must register in order to take advantage of this opportunity. An advisor must be present. The cost is $5 per student (not including meals or lodging.) There is no charge for the advisor. Even if you do not have a date in mind, please contact us as soon as possible if you are planning to take part in this program. Our goal is to have a minimum of 20 chapters participate in order to make the livestock purchases worthwhile. We strongly recommend that you combine this opportunity with a BASIC Training.
