We caught up with Missouri State Fair Market Goat Judge, Chastin Leggett, to ask him a few questions before he steps “INSIDE THE RING”!
Who got you involved in the industry and how?
Kim and Tracy Brown – my godparents. My Godsister Taylor passed me a note in church that said, “Do you want to go to 4-H”, I actually wanted to go see the new Rugrats movie but thankfully I passed the note back with a simple “Yes” . My mom bought me a $75 pig and the rest is history!
Where did you grow up?
Did you show livestock growing up? If so, what species?
Yes! I started as a rabbit kid but quickly found my love for showing livestock and have shown pigs, cattle, sheep, and goats.
Do you have a favorite animal that you have ever judged? if so, what was it?
The most memorable animal I’ve ever judged is “Yukon” the Reigndeer at the Alaska State Fair!
THIS OR THAT
Judging with Music on vs Judging in Silence
Judging Does or Judging Wethers
Judging State Fairs or Judging National Shows
