Judge personal information:

Experienced judge for the last 24 years winning contests at both the state and national level through 4-h/FFA and Collegiate areas.  Love seeing the intensity and work this next generation is putting into their animals.  I now reside in Maryland with my family where we raise Angus, Simmental, Club calves and also Boer Goats.  My interests mainly are in Cattle and Goats but have judged several county fairs with all species.
