My name is Judd Shearer. I am in Ashland County Ohio.
Pygmy Goats are the breed of choice I have raised and shown them. I enjoy showmanship judging the best because kids do not have to have the best livestock to place at the top of the line. I take time to talk to each exhibitor to see what knowledge they have. All exhibitors, including any learning disiabilites are given an equal chance! I plan the whole day when judging so there is no rush. If exhibitors are showing other species in other classes I have no problem waiting or changing to allow each exhibitor the change to enter the show ring.
I will also do Showmanship Clinics to help 4-H or FFA. I have a Full time job M-F so clinics during the week are limited to travel time. Most weekends can be scheduled with out a problem.
County Fair Judging:
Pygmy Goats - Execlent Knowledge in breed and showmanship.
Dairy Goats - Medium Knowledge in breed but execlent in showmanship.
Please note: I am still learning all the dairy breeds and standards. I will be happy to judge for you however, I feel I am not quite "good" at the breed standards. I strive to be a good judge and I want you to be happy with my results and the exibitors to have a good experance. If you only expect to have a small numer of dairy goats and dont mind taking a chance on me I will be glad to judge for you. As my ability improves I will update this information and I keep contacts so I can also notify you as I improve.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
Judging Rates are very reasoniable.
