Carcass Contest

CARCASS CONTEST

A Carcass Contest is open to all market steers, sheep, hogs, and goats who were officially weighed and exhibited in the 2016 Clarke County Fair 4-H and FFA youth livestock shows. Carcass data will be collected from the steers, sheep, hogs, and goats by ultrasound prior to slaughter. Final placings will be determined by carcass grade and yield. Steers must grade C- (minimum USDA marbling score of small) or better on the rail with a carcass weight between 600-875 lbs. Heifers are not eligible. Sheep must have a minimum back fat of .10” and gain a minimum of.10# average daily gain to be ranked. Swine must have a minimum .5” backfat to be ranked. Goats must gain at least .10# to be ranked.  

The winner in each of the 4 species will receive a plaque at the fall 4-H Achievement Banquet that is sponsored by the Lucky Leaf 4-H Club.
