Judging Ain’t Easy

We have been going hard, getting candid photos, backdrop photos and videos of all the events happening during the Chianina & Maine-Anjou Jr. Nationals.

You can find updates on our Facebook page, our Twitter account or on LiveAuctions.tv.

If you’re at home and are looking for photos to look through and smile at, check out our website.

Here’s a quick example of Kassidy Bremer, the Res. Champ Chianina Steer.

Now we realize not everyone at the show gets to stand at the backdrop with a champion. That’s obviously not the result we want, but every once in a while, we need to think about the judge’s opinion too. It’s hard work out there people.

Here’s a quote from www.livestockjudges.org and the renowned judge Jack Ward.

?When I first started judging, I thought I would please everyone.  Obviously, that does not happen.  As a matter of fact, I have had folks mad at me after a show that had the grand champion because I did not talk their animal right or maybe they thought they should have won more with other animals.  It is the nature of the game.  In most cases, I do not get confrontational.  Just listen and try to again give them your thoughts, but in most cases just let them vent.  I could tell several stories on this subject just like most all judges.? ?
