Who got you involved in the livestock industry and how?
Kent Lewis, Todd Beyers, and Logan Newsom were my county agents growing up. I owe them a lot of praise and don’t thank them nearly enough for the path they put me on. I bought my first set of does from Rory Duelm when I was young and leaned on him for advise.
What is a pet peeve you have in showmanship?
Eye rollers and bad attitudes.
Are you a first impression judge?
Yes. It’s hard to forget a first impression.
Favorite type of food?
Anything my wife cooks!
We’ve gotten the chance to go to some neat places the last few years. I probably dream more about hauling my kid across the country looking for show projects and going to stock shows rather than the beach or mountains at the moment.
College or Professional Sports?
Texas Tech Mens Basketball. Hopefully Texas Tech Football again one day.
Favorite Show you have judged?
My late friend Jason Spence gave a strong recommendation for me to judge the Ok State Fair while I was finishing up college. That one probably means the most to me because of the faith he had in a young, dumb college kid!
