UF/IFAS Animal Sciences to host a Tailgate for the UF/LSU Football Game

The UF/IFAS Department of Animal Sciences is happy to announce our Animal Sciences Alumni Tailgate will be held on October 15, 2022, at the UF/IFAS Beef Teaching Unit South. The goal of this event is to raise funds for our student judging team’s travel and expenses.

Students on the judging teams work tirelessly to learn all they can about their chosen field of study. Students on these teams come from diverse backgrounds and often begin their judging careers with little to no experience. They end the program with a vast knowledge that sets them apart from their peers and ultimately helps them gain valuable industry jobs.

Our judging teams travel across the country to test their knowledge and skills related to their field. This travel can be expensive, but the cost is worth what the students gain from each experience.

This year we will be recognizing past judging team members, some of our biggest supporters, and will even celebrate the naming of one of our Beef Teaching Unit classrooms thanks to All American Solar!

This family friendly event will play host to activities for kids of all ages, a live stream of the game, lunch from Cowboyz Catering, tailgate beverages, and transportation to the stadium prior to kick-off.

This year our goal is to raise money for our meat judging, livestock judging, and horse judging teams. All funds raised will be donated directly to the teams. If you donate between now and the day of the event, you will receive a small token of our appreciation.

Once the game time is announced, we will share what time our doors will open for the fun to begin. Stay tuned for this information and Geaux Gators!
