WOW! Just got back from another fantastic National Junior Show, this time, held at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. The weather was fantastic, the turnout was excellent, the competition was fierce, and teaming up with the All American Junior Sheep Show made a great weekend even better.
I know you’ve heard it before, but the National Jr. Suffolk Show is no ordinary sheep event…it’s something you need to experience in order to truly appreciate all that it has to offer. I can think of no better way for a Suffolk enthusiast of any age to spend the Fourth of July holiday. Thanks to everyone involved in supporting, planning, and running the show.
I am extremely honored to have been named the 2013 Suffolk Ambassador. Now that my junior days, unfortunately, are over, I am very excited to undertake the responsibilities of Ambassador. I am hoping and will work hard to be a visible, reachable, and involved representative of our breed. I am especially looking forward to learning about and meeting breeders from areas of Suffolk production that I am not as familiar with, such as, the needs of the commercial producer and the meat-to-market producer.
There are all types of Suffolk operations across the country. I will have succeeded if I am able to, with your help, promote the fact that all registered Suffolks serve a good and valuable purpose.
Please feel free to contact me any time regarding any concerns that you may have, ideas for better promoting our breed, or just to talk about sheep!
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (908) 328-4053.
You could win a Suffolk ewe lamb for the 2014 Show Season!
