Meat Judging Team Grills Competition at Fort Worth Stock Show

Red Raider competitors captured five categories en route to runaway victory.

The Texas Tech University Meat Judging Team in the Department of Animal and Food Sciences had its second dominant performance of the season, taking top honors Monday at the Southwestern Livestock Exposition’s Intercollegiate Meat Judging Contest in Fort Worth.

Texas Tech blew away the competition, outdistancing second-place Colorado State by 81 points while dominating almost every division. Texas Tech won the reasons division with a record 893 points and also took first in placings, overall beef, beef judging and beef grading.

The team, from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, opened the spring judging season by taking the title at the National Western Stock Show in Denver in January.
