Youth were responsible for identifying 30 different cuts of meat, knowing their species, primal, retail and cookery methods; be able to place six classes of meat consisting of pork carcasses, beef carcasses, pork wholesale cuts, beef wholesale cuts and two beef or pork retail cut classes; give three sets of oral reasons. The team placed 7th out of 11 teams with Ms. Alison Davis placing 7th overall in the Placings Division.
