Exhibitor Spotlight

Brisco Black

Ethan Davies

We caught up with Brisco Black, the exhibitor the Grand Champion Market Goat at the 2024 Rodeo Austin! Learn a little more about Brisco below!

What’s your favorite memory with your champion?
My favorite thing about him was his shaggy legs. He had a ton of hair.

Who has been your biggest inspiration to become the person you are today?
My mom and dad inspire me the most on a daily basis but I have some hero’s that I look up to that I want to be like as I get older. Also, seeing other kids win and show real good made me want to get better so I can be like them.

How do you prepare your goats to build up the stamina to last in the show ring?
We don’t work on bracing a whole lot but they get exercised every day. I think the thing that helps me and the animals is when we hand walk from the barn all the way down our road.

How many animals do you have on feed this year?
Last year we fed 5 goats and 5 sheep.

If you could use one word to describe your champion what would it be?
Drama

Did you experience something that didn’t go as planned with your goats? How did you overcome that?
This goat always had problems and was high maintenance. The most stressful was when he got staph about 2 weeks before Austin and my parents said we were not even going to show him. Then we decided to take him about two days before we needed to leave for the show.

Grand Champion Market Goat – 2024 Rodeo Austin
Shown by Brisco Black – Bred by Blue Team

What’s the pedigree of your champion?
I Am Legend X 1962 (Reserve Grand Champion Doe at the 2019 Georgia Nationals)

What was this goat like as a baby?
He was extremely exotic, big boned, with lots of shag.

Who’s been the most influential buck or Doe to your herd?
We have SO many bucks and does that we truly love and appreciate their influences on our goat herd.  We try to keep multiple genetic bloodlines to create our own outcrosses within our program.
We have SO many favorites, and different reasons that we deem certain animals as influential. It is hard to pinpoint just one, but if you look at revenue: the buck who generated the most revenue, and many champions, for us last season was I Am Legend (sire to Brisco’s wether), and the 2nd highest generating doe last season was 1962 (dam to Brisco’s wether). That genetic combination was destined for something great! 

Has there been anything about your operation that is unique that you haven’t seen in other places?
There are several things about our facility that we think are pretty unique and are definitely very user friendly. Our kidding room and flush system allows us to move flush and AI groups in and out of the jugs in a timely manner, and is simple to keep clean and sanitary. Our working chute (from Australia) allows us to work large groups of does without having to handle each of them individually.

Do you prefer Online or live Sales?
We love both platforms equally. Live sales allow us to interact personally with customers, and online sales let customers from across the country who can’t be here in person the opportunity to purchase livestock as well!

Educating Excellence

Ryan Burns

Spencer Scotten

Where are you the teacher?
Dover High School​

How many kids do you teach?
I teach about 50 students.

Favorite thing about being a teacher?
My favorite thing about being a teacher is trying to make a difference in students’ lives and positively influencing a student.

Hardest thing you have had to accept in the last 10 years?
The ever-changing advancements in technology have been challenging, along with trying to stay up-to-date on the newest ways to communicate and keep records. Everything we do is online, and we have lost touch with some of our traditions with technology. Also, I often feel like I am competing with a student’s cell phone or social media, and this also presents a unique set of challenges.

Favorite part of your community?
The best part of living and teaching in my community is that it is very small, which creates a family-like atmosphere. Most everyone is on the same page, and we all want to help kids succeed. Small communities tend to pour in love and support for their schools, which is why I like being a part of the Dover and Kingfisher communities.

Biggest accomplishment?
I would say my biggest accomplishment is continuing in the teaching profession for nearly 25 years while also raising 3 sons. Education has changed a lot since I began teaching, and I am proud to be one who still loves to teach. I have also enjoyed raising my sons in this program and coaching them in their FFA events.

Favorite time of the year and why?
My favorite time of the year is spring, when many FFA activities are going on. It is spring livestock show season, followed by CDE season, where I watch kids work very hard and experience some success. I have always called this the “Christmas time of FFA” because we may be on the road 5 out of the seven days of the week throughout March and April.
