There’s just nothing like loading up with your family and making treks across the country to see your …

Dedication (noun)— the quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose.   Growing up in a family that shows livestock is a blessing not enough of this world has the privilege to understand.

The importance of role models

                      This time of the year is one of the most exciting! Some stock are nearing their final show of their careers, last year’s breds are calving/farrowing/lambing/kidding for the first time and showmen are getting a jump start on new year’s project.   Facebook is filled with winter winners photos, new life entering the world and beautiful landscapes that can only be painted by the unpredictable winter weather across the country. As with each new year or new animal there comes a new excitement, new goals and most importantly, new …

I remember the first time I saw them. I was 10 years old at the National Junior Angus Show. While it wasn’t my first time attending, it was my first time showing. My heifer that year was almost too tame and a little reluctant to move sometimes. While we were in class, a guy was suddenly behind me, helping to coax her along. He wore a green jacket. And no, he wasn’t a Master’s golf champion. The green jackets of the National Junior Angus Association board stand out. And for my junior show career in the NJAA, you could often …
