University of Arkansas wins 74th USPOULTRY Foundation Ted Cameron National Poultry Judging Contest
Nine US universities recently participated in the 74th USPOULTRY Foundation Ted Cameron National Poultry Judging Contest, held at Louisiana State University in the United States.
The University of Arkansas won the high team overall category and Texas A&M University took second place.
The contest is made possible by a grant from Mountaire Corp. in honor of Ted Cameron, founder of Mountaire. It is part of the USPOULTRY Foundation's comprehensive student outreach programme, established to enhance young people's interest in the poultry industry and encourage student enrollment in poultry science and related studies.
In addition to the Ted Cameron National Poultry Judging Contest, the USPOULTRY Foundation sponsors the annual College Student Career Program, International Student Program and National FFA Career Development Event at the International Poultry Expo (IPE), as well as co-sponsors the PhD and Vet Student Career Fair during IPE, part of the International Production & Processing Expo.
Other youth outreach sponsorship includes the National FFA Convention, National 4-H poultry and egg activities, and high school, technical school and elementary school outreach programmes. The Foundation also funds student recruiting efforts at colleges and universities from coast-to-coast.
