Why should students participate on the meat judging team?

Students should strongly consider joining the meat judging team as it provides a one of a kind opportunity to not only get involved within the University but, to also get involved within the meat industry. By becoming active in these communities students are able to create irreplaceable friendships and professional relationships. Personally, joining the meat judging team was a truly defining moment for me in my life and has opened numerous doors for me. Member of the 2018 UW Meat Judging Team.
