He's been judging for at least 20- 25 years. He was one of the more respected judges out there.I'm sure he still is. He will pick the best calf, especially if it has the EX freezebrand on the shoulder.
Depends on the competition. If you are showing @San Antonio, bring your lunch pail. He probably picks good sound cattle. He is a Big Wig at Express Ranches and they raise Angus and limousin. So if you could die your herford black, that might help.
