Many young agriculturalists in Texas are already in the production of meat products through exhibiting market steers, swine, sheep, and goats at junior livestock competitions. By participating in meat science judging contests, youth learn science-based information to consider when evaluating and making decisions, as well as learning proper meat storage and handling procedures. This is important so all Texans know how to purchase safe, nutritious meat products. It will also give future agricultural and food industry leaders a broad view of the livestock industry.
