Arlo Janssen, Paul Trueblood, Joe Lewis  (maybe if it was 1968)
That ain't no fooling, Troy, and a bunch of these kids now-a-day don't even remember them or maybe not even heard about them. Bet one or two of those oldies but goodies could answer some of those questions about airing on another thread. But to keep it easy, don't do it! Period is what they would be saying.

  I was wondering when the Iowa boys would show up. Chad's, ( for those that aren't familiar, Chad clips for Tracy ), not bad with a set of clippers either. Tracy's brother troy can get one ready also.
  You'd have to mention Wade Rogers and Jr. Spear in this thread I would think, but there are many, many great fitter's around the country.

Well being from Wisconsin I better say Bob May and his crew. They plain just get it done. I like how fresh and chiseled a good steer of their's looks when it hits the ring.

Clint McCaully
Colt Brooks

Those were 2 of the first that came to my mind.

Anyone here of the name Totten Club Calves.  I should have written the individuals name down but him and a buddy from Illinois due fitting and clipping as well as put on clinics.  They are reasonably priced and our county is thinking of hiring them to put on a clinic.  Any thoughts from others out there or if they have heard of them.  I know they have a thread on here and that's were I received there name.  We are a small county and cannot afford someone like Kirk Stierwalt even though I would love to see him in Minnesota at some point in time.

I believe I am the Illinois buddy of Totten's. I don't want to brag, but we can both fit. Not gonna say we're on the same level as Kirk or the Goretska boys or anything like that, but we're pretty decent.
