In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, we patiently waited to hear how livestock competition would occur this year. We soon discovered that all in person events were cancelled along with the county and state fair. 4-H did, however, hold a virtual competition for kids. The amount of kids competing was significantly lower than a normal year but we experienced how to video everything and then sit in a virtual zoom call with the judge to hear their report.
For the state level they did a live video and multiple videos allowing the judge to compare and comment as he was watching the videos.

Learnings we had from this experience is sometimes it is easier to do it in person than through photos and video. Overall, it was a good experience and looking forward to being able to compete in person soon.
