Judge personal information:
Growing up, my family raised show cattle where we competed and found success at the local, state and national levels. 4-H was very much a focus for me growing up, competively showing in dairy beef, feeder cattle, rabbits, horses, beef, swine and sheep. Upon my graduation from high school, I knew I wanted to give back to a program and lifestyle that instilled so many life lessons that have shaped my future. I have achieved my Bachelors in AgEconomics from Purdue University where I found myself on the Purdue Dairy Judging Team where I went on to win High Overall Indvidual in both the Louisville, KY and Fort Worth, TX judging contests. Throughout my college career, I have judged several competitions throughout Indidana. From supreme showmanships to dairy, dairy-beef, feeder cattle, horses, swine and rabbits. I continue to offer my judging knowledge to local, area, state and national shows and judging contests.
