Participants learn principles of wool fiber evaluation through the inter-collegiate
wool judging format. Additionally, students learn principles of fiber metrology, objective
measurement of wool, quality characteristics, and how quality of the raw fleece influences
finished-product development. Team members are required to enroll in the wool judging
class (1 credit) and are expected to practice twice weekly during the fall semester
with greater frequency the week prior to the National Western Inter-Collegiate Wool
Judging Competition, generally the second week in January. Team members also have
the opportunity to work with WY 4-H and FFA wool judging teams assisting in clinics
and invitational contests on campus.
