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?

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.
