Introducing the 2017 Junior Show Judge for Ring 2

 

Tyler Winegardner
Lima, Ohio


Along with my family, I am the owner/operator of Winegardner Show Cattle.  Every November we hold our annual production sale where we focus on selling show heifers to families nationwide.  Our main emphasis is on raising Chianina cattle with a few other breeds mixed in.  I have been very fortunate to have been raised in a great family that has allowed me to succeed no matter what level. I now am trying to do the same for our customers. After high school, I attended Black Hawk East and then Michigan State University. I competed on both the livestock judging teams. I was very fortunate to be on great teams. At Black Hawk, our team is still the only team to win all four major contests and at MSU I was fifth high individual at the North American. Since college, I have had the opportunity to judge numerous shows throughout the United States and Canada including the American Royal, National Western and several state fairs.
