Exhibitor Spotlight

Madden Wise

Ethan Davies

We caught up with Madden Wise, the exhibitor the Grand Champion Market Goat at the 2024 San Angelo Stock Show! Learn a little more about Madden below!

What’s your favorite memory with your champion?
My favorite memory with this goat is definitely the day we brought him home, not only did I love the way he looked, but he also behaved far better than any goat I had in the barn at this time.

Who has been your biggest inspiration to become the person you are today?
Seeing the success my grandpa, dad, and aunts have had in this industry inspires me to continue pursuing my goals in their footsteps, along with the motivation from my younger siblings.

How do you prepare your goats to build up the stamina to last in the show ring?
Often times the goats struggle to remain cool with the intensity of the ring especially when they’re in there for a long period of time so the best thing that has helped me is working with them for excessive amounts of time so they’re used to it, also setting them up periodically when drenching or feeding helps a bunch.

How many animals do you have on feed this year?
We started the year with about 30 sheep and 25 goats.

If you could use one word to describe your champion what would it be?
Sentimental, not only for the sake of the banner, more so because the goat was raised by really close friends of ours, and I was given the opportunity to win San Angelo along side one of my closest friends.

Did you experience something that didn’t go as planned with your goats? How did you overcome that?
When my sister showed this goat at our county fair he completely forgot how to show for me so rebuilding that trust with him was a struggle but eventually he remembered how to show for me with no problem.

Ethan Davies

We caught up with Brett Bowers, the exhibitor the Grand Champion Market Goat at the 2024 Fort Worth Stock Show! Learn a little more about Brett below!

What’s your favorite memory with your champion?
My favorite memory would have to be absolutely blaring music in the barn and washing him.

Who has been your biggest inspiration to become the person you are today?
My biggest inspiration is mom. It doesn’t matter what the situation is, there’s always a lecture about something which can be annoying, but at the end of the day the lectures are why I am who I am today.

How do you prepare your goats to build up the stamina to last in the show ring?
The phrase “Practice like you play” is what I go by. I’ve showed many times and know the general idea of what happens in the show ring. Therefore, I can replicate showing at home as if I was in the ring.

How many animals do you have on feed this year?
I have 21 animals on feed.

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

Did you experience something that didn’t go as planned with your goats? How did you overcome that?
Yes. This year our goats weren’t the easiest feeding. So we had to take it slow with them and really study what they would eat and try new things.

What’s the pedigree of your champion?
Arizona National – One & Only x Ellie donor (Safe Deposit x Swamp Boy)
National Western – One & Only x Went Swamp Boy donor
Fort Worth – One & Only x Ellie donor (Safe Deposit x Swamp Boy)

In your opinion, who has been the most influential buck across the industry?
No doubt there have been several but She Said and Cash In are a few in this one’s pedigree and several others that have found success. Too many to list but lots of them originate from the Texas Hill Country.

What makes your operation run smoothly?
Our family… it takes each and every one of us and we all have different skill sets that compliment each other. We’ve had excellent mentors in this goat deal… learned a lot from bumps and bruises along the way but had lots of great advice from a lot of great people.

What does your breeding season look like? Do you AI or flush most of your Females?
Pretty much all ET work here.  2-3 big flushes a year for different target age groups but rely heavily on embryo transfer.  We are probably busier during breeding season sending semen or breeding does for others than we are on our own stock. Lots of customer lap AIs, semen shipping, and internal ET work for us.

How has the new reproduction practices impacted your herd?
Allows us to run an elite pool of donors (30 hd) and shorten generation intervals quickly.  It’s also allowed us to help several others pick up steam in their operations as well.

What’s your dream as a producer?
Help others win!  Not just in the show ring but in life!

Do you prefer online sales or live sales?
No preference – They are both a bunch of work!

Educating Excellence

Joe Allen

Spencer Scotten

Where are you the teacher?
East High in Cheyenne, WY​

How many kids do you teach?
Typically 100-120 students per year.

Favorite thing about being a teacher?
I enjoy when I get to see students make connections with what we are learning to real life and also seeing them realize how their hard work pays off.

Hardest thing you have had to accept in the last 10 years?
Change. We experienced a lot of changes after Covid and everything has changed in our world and that has been difficult, especially in education.

Favorite part of your community?
I love how our community works together, so well, and really comes out to help individuals who need it. I also like to see how well people work to help one another, even though they may be competing against them.

Biggest accomplishment?
I feel like my biggest accomplishment is becoming a successful Ag Teacher and FFA advisor, even though I was not in FFA or did not take ag classes while I was in high school.

Favorite time of the year and why?
I love the spring and summer months because that’s when we are going around shopping for new animals and then feeding animals for county and state fair. I love the summer time when I am doing SAE visits and getting to work with students with their animals at shows.
