Members also complete an exam, present a project summary and make a sales presentation for an agricultural product.
Participants also complete a written communications quiz and an editing exercise. Members hest a team each evaluate fleeces for fineness, length and yield, rank fleeces within a group and give reasons for their placing of those classes. Team members make pasture management recommendations using information provided on a “pasture condition sheet” and by observing landscape and vegetative features.
Contestants must be very familiar with all grading standards and evaluation techniques because no measuring devices are to be used during the contest. The top three scores are tabulated in the team score.
