Judge personal information:

I was a member of the  Purdue University, and Black Hawk East Livestock Judging teams. As a youth, I participated in FFA and 4-H livestock judging and represented Indiana on the 2006 State Champion team and competed at the National level. I was fortunate to receive numerous honors and recognition at the Nationa level throughout my collegiate judging career. Currently, I am an Ag teacher and livestock judging coach and enjoy sharing my knowledge of livestock with future generations of livestock enthusiasts. I previously served as a member of my county swine board, the Indiana Junior Swine Circuit executive board, and the Indiana Landrace Breeders Association executive board.  Additionally and most importantly, I enjoy raising show pigs with my husband as an owner and operator at Grimm Family Livestock and assisting youth in preparing their projects for competition at the local, state and national levels. I have the most experience judging swine but am comfortable with all species.

Angie Martin -

I am very impressed with Mandy's attention as a livestock judge. She judged at our Eaton County Fair yesterday for my 9 year old daughter's dairy showmanship and dairy market classes. She spends a great amount of time and detail in judging and after placing them all, she provides the participant and the audience specific information about how she judged and what the participant can work on. She was honest and very professional. For my daughter being a novice, she had a great time and nice experience with the show. She wants to show again next year.

I have had the privilege to Mandy Wagoner for some time now. Also as a graduate of Columbia City High School, I have looked up to her and respect her as a judge. She is honest and brings forth integrity to the show ring.
