Texas Tech meat judging team opens competition with win at Eastern National

Texas Tech University’s Meat Judging Team opened the defense of its 2020 national championship and pursuit of the program’s 16th national title overall with a solid victory Oct. 2 at the 2021 American Meat Science Association (AMSA) Eastern National Meet held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.

The Eastern National meet is the first of three meets for the Meat Judging Team in October and its first competition of the fall championship season. The team once again set the tone early in the season that it is favored to win the championship yet again, according to a news release from the university.

“We were very blessed by this win, and the credit goes to the hard work and effort of each member of the team, the coaches, and God who gave us safe travels and a great performance,” said Mark Miller, coach of the Meat Judging Team and the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Distinguished Chair in Meat Sciences. “I look forward to the remaining three contests as they will be a challenge to win. I love the positive attitude and close family atmosphere this team exhibits each day.”
