We did it... again!

November 20, 2023

With your help, the OSU Meat Judging Team raised $9,519, which is $1,500 more than our second goal! We could not have done it without the support of our friends, family, and alumni . THANK YOU!

Because of your generous support, the judging team program is prepared to start a new season in 2024 with majority of costs covered that are associated with practice supplies, travel, and lodging.

Thank you for believing in our program and helping us spread the word.

Go Pokes!
