I would encourage you to request at least a desk copy for your reference.  You can use this link to request a desk copy of the Modern Livestock & Poultry-8th Edition. 


The 8th Edition is the official reference for the State & National Livestock Evaluation CDE's, however, the Area & State contests questions & answers will be able to be found in both the 7th & 8th editions. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.
