Virgina Tech Livestock Judging Pavilion, Blacksburg, VA
Since the first sale in 1995, more than 1,200 students have gained valuable merchandising experience working on all facets of the sale. Students in the Livestock Merchandising class hear from guest lecturers from the equine, swine, and cattle industries and get insight on their professional knowledge of merchandising and marketing, catalog production, presentation of sale animals, and the organization of auctions. Students must serve on one of the committees that are devoted to a specific aspect of the sale such as advertising, clerking, livestock photography, animal display, food and beverage, decorations, or sale ring.
Proceeds from the sale are re-invested in departmental programs.
