This event focuses on a member’s ability to utilize logical reasoning in relation to production, management, marketing and consumption of poultry products. Members who compete in the Poultry Evaluation CDE evaluate production, processing and merchandising phases of the poultry industry as well as identify various industry components. They are also tested on the application of sound management practices. Participants evaluate live birds, present oral reasons and place a class of ready-to-cook broilers. In the processing and merchandising phase of the event, members select and grade ready-to-cook turkeys, processed products and cartons of eggs.
