North Dakota 4-H/FFA Range Judging Contest Sept 15th, 2016

The North Dakota 4-H/FFA Range Judging Contest will be held on Thursday, September 15 on the Tammy Luhman property north of Gladstone, ND. Please note this on your calendars. THIS IS A DATE CHANGE. Previously we had listed the tentative date for Friday. This change was primarily made to reduce conflicts with school related activities. The Williams County Extension Office is currently holding Range Judging Training for 4-H members interested in participating in the State Range Judging Contest. 

Range Judging is learning to "read" the range to make proper managements decisions. Contestants learn to:

  •   Recognize the components of the range resource
  •   Evaluate the ecosystem's current condition
  •   Develop the management practices to improve the ecosystem
  •   develop better understanding of the plant communities

There will be only one competition, the State Range Judging Contest, on September 15th, 2016. In addition to a small number of practice meetings the team will have to study on their own. There are 117 plants that are possible to be judged on. Do not let that scare you! Contests tend to focus on the common or very rare ones which makes it a bit easier to study and look for them. Team members must be 8 years old and above. Any 4-H member interested in participating need to contact Danielle Steinhoff. Contact her by email at: danielle.steinhoff@ndsu.edu or by phone at 701-577-4595
