Judge personal information:
As a youth, I spent countless miles on the road showing horses, sheep, and the occasional calf. While showing horses was my first love, I quickly fell in love with the differences in atmosphere of livestock shows once I purchased my first sheep. From there my love affair continued to grow into a small operation where I raise registered Southdowns, Katahdins, and a few crosses of the two. I strive to raise functional, correct sheep that excel in the show ring and go on to be productive dams and sires for both purebred and commercial flocks.
I graduated from Kansas State University in May of 2015 majoring in Animal Sciences & Industry with a certificate in Beef Cattle Ranch Management.
