In the exceptionally fine teaching aid, important evaluative criteria for market steers are demonstrated. Muscling: illustrated using steers and special effects. Correctness of Finish: contrasts two steers while discussing the 12th rib, brisket, flank, cod, pin area and bone area. Balance: at rest and in motion, structural correctness demonstrated using steers with various defects-sickle hocked, straight shouldered, toed-out, straightness of knee, post legged, restricted stride, steep/short pastern, stiff in hock, knock kneed, splay footed, bow legged, small outside toe, cow hocked and coarse open shoulder. Correctness of Weight: covers substance, acceptability for the industry, ideal weight and dressing percent. A practice class of market steers is placed by a national champion collegiate livestock judging team member (includes an outstanding set of oral reasons); then, official placings, cuts and reasons are presented. Periodic quizzes help students remember the information. A supplement is included.
