Livestock Judging Recap… Louisville and Denver

I know it’s been a while since our followers have been updated on the events of the Butler Livestock Judging Team, so I’ll try to be as descriptive, yet as brief as possible.

Louisville… The North American International Livestock Exposition. The best purebred cattle show around, one of the oldest livestock judging contests (continued from Chicago), enough said right?

After working out on some of the best livestock our industry has to offer, we took to the floor to test our skills.

Team members Maverick Squires, Taylor Graham, Jared Wynn, Emily Jackson, and Parker Henley.

Swine: Jared Wynn 5th High Individual

After a well deserved Thanksgiving and Christmas Vacation, we were back at it. The turning of the New Year brought the much-anticipated National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado. Thankfully, we only endured one extremely cold winter day on our way to Denver. After more than 75 classes and 25 sets in just 10 days, including practice contests at OSU, KSU, and Walker’s (Arkansas) we were ready to go once again! This time, two contests on back to back days. First, the regular livestock contest with reasons, then the carload judging contest with cattle classes only and one set of questions.

Team Members: Jared Wynn, Taylor Graham, Maverick Squires, Parker Henley, and Brett Moriarty.

Sheep and Goats: Maverick Squires 6th, Butler 2nd
