The award-winning livestock judging team has a rich tradition of excellence at Lake Land College. Coach Jordan Rauch leads the nationally recognized team compete in the areas of beef cattle, pig, sheep and goat judging. The team annually competes from late summer through early spring in more than half a dozen major events throughout the Midwest, including National Barrow Show, Tulsa State Fair, Premier Stockman, American Royal, NAILE, the National Western Stock Show, The Dixie Nationals, San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo and the Houston Stock Show and Rodeo.
During freshman year, judging team members are enrolled in a Livestock Evaluation course and practice primarily to prepare for their more extensive sophomore year contests. Livestock Judging Scholarships are available to students who have the outstanding ability to perform on the College’s team and are awarded by the coach.
