Administrative History

The Golden Hoof Club was organized in April 1920 by students who were interested in livestock industries. Professor Gordon True was instrumental in the club's founding. According to the 1921 El Rodeo Yearbook, the club's purpose was to "awaken a more general interest among the students of livestock and stockmen for the promotion and development of the animal industries; to cooperate with all agencies that tend to encourage the raising of more and better livestock to do its best to elevate the standards of American agriculture through better farming, breeding, and livestock management; to help bring about a student's annual livestock judging contest; the purpose of the contest being to encourage the students of the College of Agriculture and the University Farm to learn how to judge livestock, with a direct aim towards the formation of a judging team to meet other universities."
The club's first judging contest was held at Picnic Day. In later years, the club organized the Little International Livestock Show.
