Bay Carpenter -
Andy Barth was a super fair, kind, and knowledgeable judge for our Clallam County fair. He was consistent in his opinions and never played favorites or swayed his thinking in anyway. I was happy to have him and I would recommend him in any agricultural setting.
Andy judged our hog show for two years. Our show is like most shows and we only book judges for two consecutive years. We wish we could have asked him back after his second year. He knows livestock, loves working with youth and the kids learned a lot from him. He took the time to make sure the kids knew what to do and the reasons behind showing techniques. We will definitely be asking him back for another rotation in a few years. He is worth every penny.
If you are looking for a excellent Judge Andy is your guy. He judged our show this year and did one of the best jobs we have ever had. He is very professional. He also took the time to help educate our kids. Andy made sure they knew how to show, but he also made sure they understood what was driving the livestock industry. In our opinion Andy was well worth the money. We have gone ahead and scheduled him for next year.
