After successfully competing on the livestock and horse judging teams at Penn State, I continued to follow my passion for the livestock industry both in and out of the ring. Since expanding our family in 2012 with our daughter Lena, my husband and I's judging roster has multiplied quickly. We own and operate May Family Enterprises in Bedford County, PA; producing elite show lambs and Hereford cattle. I have also started my own business called Breakthrough Livestock Services, where I guide and provide services to the serious showman looking to succeed. I also believe that the added combination of exhibiting animals myself and helping run shows in Pennsylvania allows me more insight and the ability to make the show day a pleasant experience for everyone involved.

Judging shows is such an incredible way to stay involved with youth programs across the country and use a lifetime of specific skills to analyze livestock in a fair consistent way that will hopefully help breeders and showmen alike to improve their programs. I have been judging every species of livestock since graduating in 2007. However, beef cattle are my specialty and biggest passion. I have been fortunate to judge at numerous levels on the East Coast and even got to go out on the green shavings judging the National Jr. Belted Galloway Show in Louisville in 2014.

My husband and I are also able to travel together and judge multiple species at the same show. If you are looking for a highly skilled, fair and consistent livestock evaluator with an extra passion for working with junior exhibitors, look no further! Thank you for your time and consideration!


Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Sciences from the Pennsylvania State University, spring 2007.
