2021-2022 UW Wool Judging Team

UW Wool Judging Team

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.
