Kentucky 4-H Livestock Judging All-Star Gold Teams

Beginning in 1969, Kentucky transitioned from a county-based team that represented the state at the National 4-H Livestock Judging Contest to an All-Star "Gold Team" comprised of the top livestock judges from across the state.  To qualify for the "Gold Team", the top 12 overall placing 4-H youth at the Kentucky 4-H Livestock Judging Contest attend Top 12 Week for additional training.  Eight of the youth attending Top 12 Week are selected for additional training and participation in several regional and national livestock judging contests in the Fall of the year.  From this select group, the top four youth are chosen to be members of the Kentucky 4-H All-Star Gold Livestock Judging Team.  The following are past members of this elite livestock judging team.

If you can fill in some of the missing gaps of information for previous Gold Team members, please contact Dr. Richard Coffey.
