Tech’s meat judging team took first place honors on Sunday, March 3rd at the Houston Livestock Show’s Intercollegiate Meat Judging Contest.

The Red Raiders’ black team finished first, and Tech’s red team finished second out of eleven universities that were competing for the title.

Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M, and Kansas State finished third through fifth, respectively.

The Tech teams won the beef grading, beef judging, lamb judging, overall beef, specifications, and placings divisions.

“I’m very proud of the commitment of these students this spring,” said Mark Miller, Horn Professor and San Antonio Livestock Show Distinguished Chair in Meat Science. “We are very blessed to have such a large and deeply competitive team this year.”

The individual members managed to dominate as well, securing eight out of 10 high individual overall spots.

The team is coached by graduate student Loni Woolley and Professor Miller.
