75 competitors from 10 different provincial 4-H, college or University teams gathered at The Atlas Hotel in Regina Saskatchewan on Sunday November 19 for the 2023 Canadian National 4-H & Youth Judging Competition. Along with 11 team chaperones (thanks to Stacey Hawkins and Crystal Murphy), participants enjoyed a tasty supper, with words from event sponsor Corteva Agriscience. Participants received an informative orientation, followed by guest speaker Quick Dick McDick. The competitors then judged a Scenario Class (minerals), Milk Composition and Steaks. Competitors gave written reasons on these three classes.
Monday morning, competitors were bussed to the Agribition grounds where they judged: Speckle Park Heifer Calves, Dairy, Heavy Horses, Charolais Bred Heifers, Hereford Bull calves and Texas longhorns.
Throughout the afternoon, participants gave oral reasons to a variety of judges. Monday evening came to a close after an awards banquet with words from event sponsor, TD, and greetings from the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. David Marit. Awards were then presented, with the final placings being announced:
Team Award: University of Saskatchewan
