Future Plans:

How many years have you been showing? Do you show any other species?
I have been showing goats for 8 years. I showed swine for 5 years.

Other hobbies besides showing livestock?
Fishing, lifting weights, spending time with my mom, two sisters, and brother-in-law.

Best stock show memory:
My best memories of showing are taking long road trips with my dad. Those mementoes are so important because I lost my dad last year.

Tell us about your recent champion:
My recent champion’s name started out as Viper until she lost one of her horns and we renamed her Unicorn. She has a wide skeleton and a wide rack. She Carrie’s the width of her each throughout her whole top. She balances on the profile well while still having plenty of mass.
