Everyone in the Ag industry has a story to tell. I would like to give the Educators, Leaders, Showmen, and Parents of our industry a platform to tell their unique story. Welcome to The Show. I hope that you enjoy the conversation as much as I do. HAVE FUN!!!
This girl is a powerhouse in the goat ring. Kenna Gay is from Oklahoma where she grew up playing sports until she fell in love with goats. With help from Darbie Ross she has been able to make herself a dominant force in the goat world and will continue to do so as she continues her show career.

Recorded after the first day of a Next Level Livestock Camp, all three of us were pretty drained but we were eager to talk about the show industry and everything that comes with it even after a full day of working hogs. Thats what I love about this industry, it evokes passion in whoever allows themselves to be truly invested in it. I am lucky to have friends like this and I am happy that I am able to help the younger generation achieve their goals.
This New Mexico 4-H Extension Agent is one of my life long friends. Zane grew up in AZ. Judged in Junior College for Connors State College while obtaining his associates. Then he went on to Texas Tech to be a National Livestock Judging Champion!! I am proud to call him a friend and I am always honored when I find myself judging along his side from time to time
Karson and his family are well known in the hog barn across the country. I met him while I was serving on the NJSA Junior board and from 10 years old I knew this kid was going to be super competitive and driven. Turns out my instincts weren't wrong. Karson has a year left in his show career after 15 years in the ring. Im excited to see what the future holds for him.
Im always thrilled when I can have a young and hungry guest on the podcast. Zane is both young and hungry with so much more to offer. Zane has a passion for this industry that feeds back to his home and community of Torrington, WY. I cant wait to see what him and his family do in the near future. If you're looking for a judge, call Zane. Stonecypher Show Sheep on FB. Stoncypherss.com

Heading home from Western Bonanza listening to Ernest Donohue’s podcast. I’ve been working with him since my second fair and I’m now wrapping up my senior year. I’ve learned countless lessons from Ernest and I’ve also had lots of success. I would not be raising hogs at the level I am without Ernest’s help and support.
I’m a mom that listens to podcast traveling to jackpots. I’m new to post casting, there’s a story in my town that hit my interest and I’m obsessed with true crime. But I thought to search for livestock and found your podcast. My family shows sheep and cattle and I feel like you hit it home for me. I listen to you now religiously. I’d like you to interview Del Peterson. Long time sheep producer and a retired AG teacher.
If you’re new to the agriculture industry, this is the BEST podcast to listen to!! You can hear stories of how people made their business from the ground up and have affected their families so much! Cannon has a powerful voice and gives a voice to others!
