  2. Oral Reasons • Teach you to organize your thoughts and defend your decision to a reason taker • Maximum time is two (2) minutes

  3. Benefits from Reasons • Think more clearly • State your thoughts clearly • Improve your speaking voice • Develop memory • Learn to recall a situation clearly • What happened several hours ago or even longer

  4. Benefits from Reasons • Become organized • Get your thoughts in line with what you have on paper • Express yourself in a convincing manner • Defend your decisions • Sell yourself and your ideas

  5. Steps to a high score • Stand up straight and put hands behind your back. • Speak in a louder than normal speaking voice. • Greet the reasons taker with Good Morning, Good Afternoon or simply Hi or Hello • Look at the reasons taker in the eye or forehead or just over their head

  6. Steps to a high score • Stand 5 to 6 feet from reasons taker • Avoid words and phrases that do not add meaning • Talk the obvious ie; the most noticeable points first • Keep reasons short and to the point • Be descriptive and complete • Do not use notes

  7. Note format • Use identifying marks • Don’t memorize • Visualize

  8. Reasons Format • Pleasant to hear • Easy to listen to • Easy to follow • Cover major points in the class • Use correct gender and terms specific to the particular class • Given in comparison terms

  9. Reasons Format • Breaks a class of four animals into three pairs • Top, middle, bottom • Each pair is discussed in three areas • General or broad statements • Reinforcements or specific statements • Grants or criticisms

  11. Use Comparative terms • Bigger • Longer • More muscle • Lighter • Smaller • “er” terms • NOTE: Don’t use the same term over and over. Longer vs more extended.

  12. Transition Terms • Words or phrases that help your reasons flow more smoothly. • Allows reasons taker to follow your thoughts more easily • Use voice inflection • There are lists on the internet • Search words like livestock judging reasons or terms

  15. Basic Format • Greet the reasons taker • Top individual if obvious • Top pair • Middle pair • Bottom pair • Last animal

  16. Top Pair • General Statement • Tell reason for placing 1 first and over 2 in the top pair • Reinforcements • Go into more detail to further describe your general statement • Grants • Was 2 better that 1 in any area? • Criticize 2
