Little International is an annual experiential education event, this year involving over 200 WT students, including ANSC 1319 (Principles of Animal Science) contestants, AGRI 4305 (Conducting Supervised Agricultural Experience Program) student team leaders, various graduate students, Block and Bridle and Collegiate FFA members, and other students. Multiple faculty also supported the event in various ways. The students in these classes have not only learned about animals and teaching, but they have developed relationships and learning groups that undoubtedly contribute to recruiting and retention efforts.
Total exhibit entries for the two-day show were 77 cattle, 63 sheep, 56 pigs and 88 horses, along with 70 contestants competing in Quiz Bowl. This is among the largest shows of this kind in the United States in terms of the number of student participants and the number of livestock exhibits.
Congratulations to the winners, and a huge thanks to all those that worked hard to once again make this a successful event!
