Butler Alumni-No Limits!

Butler CC Alumni: Krisha Custis (on right); Krisha judged this Colorado Jr. Angus Association show.

Few students can or ever will be able to match the sheer determination and will to succeed of Krisha Custis.  Krisha is originally from Saratoga, Wyoming.  Growing up Krisha was involved with several different species of livestock, but found a true passion for hogs and the swine industry.  Krisha came to school here at Butler Community College and competed on the 2003-2004 Livestock Judging Team.  She was also a member of Phi theta kappa.  During her time here at Butler she was a tough competitor in the classroom and on the team. 

 After Butler she transferred to Colorado State University where she double majored in Animal Science and Ag Business.  In addition to a successful Livestock Judging Career at the Sr. College level Krisha was also involved with Ag Ambassadors. 

 Since her graduation from CSU Krisha has worked as a Show Feed Specialist with ADM Alliance Nutrition.  She consults with customers and also with a large dealer network to educate them about ADM products and also how those products should be used.  She also represents ADM at Livestock Events around the country.  Krisha’s tenacity has allowed her to succeed in a profession where men have traditionally worked.  In my mind young ladies should consider Krisha to be a role model, because tough, smart girls like her succeed at whatever they chose to do. 

Today, not only is Krisha successful professional, but she is also a highly respected livestock evaluator.  She has judged local, state and national livestock shows all over the country.  Additionally, her love of pigs has translated into her family’s show pig operation, Custis Show Pigs.  In recent years, Custis Show Pigs have gained national attention with their production of numerous champions! 

 Krisha lives in Colorado, but like  many Butler CC graduates she maintains close ties with her Butler family.  Like other Butler Ag girls she has found that with skills, hard work, determination and a little savvy there are no limits to what can be achieved in modern agriculture.
