The livestock management career development event is predominantly a team-based competition with an individualized knowledge based component. Teams of five (5) students will work together to complete six different species-based (beef cattle, dairy cattle, horse, poultry, sheep, and swine) practicum exams that will test their knowledge regarding the scientific basis and practical application of livestock management concepts related to nutritional management, breeding, genetic, and reproductive management, quality assurance and herd health management, and business management that includes both marketing and product evaluation.
Agriculture Education courses that align with the Livestock Management CDE include: Introduction to Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources; Animal Science; Large Animal Management; and Veterinary Science.
