    About Prime Beef Cattle Young Judges

              The Queensland Ag Shows Prime Beef Cattle Young Judges Competition are conducted on a state-wide basis. The competitions are held across three levels – Local Agricultural Show, Sub Chamber Finals and State Finals.

              As the title suggests, the competitions are open to young people aged 15 and under 25 years as at 1st May in the year of the Competitor’s State Final.

              The aim of these competitions is to develop judging skills of young people to ensure a selection of experienced judges for future Agricultural Shows. Competitors also improve their communication and presentation skills.

              Young Judges, among other competitions,  offer significant personal and professional development opportunities for young people. The ability to network with, and learn from industry leaders while developing skills such as public speaking and personal confidence is a rare opportunity for young people. To do this in a setting that develops interest and skills in agricultural careers provides a great platform for young people to become involved in our industry.

              The criteria for judging Young Judges are based on developing the skills and knowledge of the entrants. Hence much emphasis is given to the ability for entrants to justify the reasons for placing the animals. This is vitally important as selecting animals is a subjective task based on the productions system the judge has in mind and the changing market specifications. The skill required to justify your placements and articulate those in public are hugely beneficial in professional life.

    2022 Queensland Ag Shows State Final Information will not be released until each Sub Chamber Final has been completed and the respective Sub Chamber representatives determined. The closing date for notification of Sub Chamber representatives is 30 June.
