OSU Livestock Judging Team WIns National Collegiate Livestock Judging Contest in Louisville- Outscoring Second Place K-State by 50 Points

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 21:17:02

OSU Livestock Judging Team WIns National Collegiate Livestock Judging Contest in Louisville- Outscoring Second Place K-State by 50 Points Oklahoma State University won the 2017 National Collegiate Livestock Judging Contest held at the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky. The team, coached by Blake Bloomberg, scored 4719 points to beat runner-up Kansas State, which finished with 4669 points. Western Illinois finished third, Texas Tech was fourth and South Dakota State was fifth. Twenty-nine colleges competed in the contest held November 13 and the results were announced at the awards breakfast on November 14.


Oklahoma State team members included Justin Jensen, Jennifer Bedwell, Jessica Judge, Brandon Collopy, and Clay McGuire. This is the 18th National Championship for Oklahoma State and its first since 2012. The team also achieved the rare feat of placing first in the four major divisions (beef, sheep, swine and reasons).


The high team overall takes home the Spoor Trophy, a bronze bull whose likeness was the symbol of the International Livestock Exposition in Chicago. A likeness of the trophy has been presented to the winning team every year since the first contest at the 1900 International. That tradition has continued since the contest moved to the North American International Livestock Exposition in 1976.


In the Individual Awards, Jessica Judge from Oklahoma State was the high individual overall with 955 points. Judge was also the top individual in swine and reasons, while placing 6th in beef and 9th in sheep. Justin Jensen (Oklahoma State) finished second overall, Jim Waldrop (Texas Tech) was third, Jennifer Bedwell (Oklahoma State) was fourth and Kelsey Jozwiak (Texas A&M) placed fifth.


Blake Bloomberg of Oklahoma State received the coach of the year honors for OSUís overall performance during the 2017 judging contests across the United States.
