NEO is proud to have perhaps the most acclaimed, long-standing livestock judging program in the country. Our program has been built upon years of accomplishments and awards, which have maintained a high national profile, for both the team and college. Many master breeders and livestock industry leaders were once a member of the NEO livestock judging team.
We firmly believe in the proper teaching of livestock evaluation and are dedicated to its participants. Workout stops include seeing some of the nations best livestock and meeting many of the master breeders and top managers at the country’s elite livestock operations. Most judging team members at NEO elect to continue their education at a four-year institution. Members are actively recruited by senior college coaches to participate in their judging programs. Students are actively encouraged to participate on the livestock judging team regardless of major and the skills gained as a result will be of benefit in any career.
