Judge personal information:

I have been involved in show cattle production since childhood with a focus on Simmental cattle. During my youth I was very active in 4-H as well as the American Junior Simmental Association. Since graduation from college I have had the opportunity to judge numerous cattle shows throughout the midwest including many county fairs, jackpot shows, regional & national classics as well as individual breeds at the Iowa State Fair. This consitutes well over 15 years of judging experience.I have experience in both junior and open shows. I do greatly enjoy working with youth on all levels as well as the opportunity to evaluate showmanship competitions. I also have experience sorting multiple breeds both in the youth arenas as well as for dedicated open breed shows of all types.A key to my success in the ring is not only in my ability to evaluate, but having extensive training and experience in public speaking which aids in clear reasoning while on the microphone. I have been an auctioneer for over 25 years as well as an established emcee and former radio broadcaster. Recently I have relocated to North Carolina and would love the opportunity to get involved in the circuit out here as most of my focus had been in the midwest and west while living in Iowa previously. I am happy to dicuss my qualifications more in depth as needed. Thank you for your consideration.
