LCCC student named Reserve Senior Showman Champion
A student at Laramie County Community College, Kelby Kaufman was named the Reserve Senior Showman Champion at the Great Northern Livestock Exposition at Archer’s Event Center.
Kaufman is a member of the LCCC Livestock Show Team and is pursuing associate studies in Animal Science at LCCC and in the college’s Agriculture & Equine track.
As a member of the Livestock Show team, Kaufman had the opportunity to learn about the proper handling and care of all species, including goats, sheep, pigs and market cattle. .
The students on the team are responsible for the general care of the cattle and spend time mornings and evenings working with the cattle, which has helped Kaufman achieve his goal of Reserve Senior Showman Champion. “Growing up, I showed all species, but livestock was the main focus,” Kaufman said. “I specifically wanted to come to LCCC for the show team because the other junior colleges I looked at didn’t have one. It gives us the opportunity to network and keep showing cattle.
Members of the Livestock Expo team at LCCC do not need to be enrolled in the Agriculture & Equine track, this is an opportunity for students of all educational interests to show off their fun and appreciation for agriculture and animal husbandry. Scholarships are available for team participants as well as opportunities to travel to competitions as part of the LCCC Livestock Show Team.
For more information about the LCCC Livestock Show Team, contact Dale Brown, Show Team Coach, at [email protected] or Clayton Roland, Instructor and Judges Coach at [email protected] lccc.wy.edu or 307-778-1192.
