BiographyI started showing Hereford cattle at the age of 8, and the 4H project continued to grow. My father and I now manage our herd of 25 purebred Hereford cows at a small farm in East Central Illinois. I attended the University of Illinois for four years and was a member of the 2011 Meat Judging Team and the 2012 Livestock Judging Team. I placed in the top ten at both the Stockman contest and the All-East contest. I was also in the top 25 at the American Royal and at Louisville.
I believe that livestock exhibitors are the future of agriculture and I strive to make their experience in the show ring as positive and fun as possible.
EducationB.S from the University of Illinois 2013
