Jordan wins Showman of Showman


ROCKSPRINGS — They may be a grand or reserve champion showman when it comes to showing their own animals, but how do the county’s top showmen do when being put in the area to show six different species of animals.

Participants in Friday’s Showman of Showman competition were Jacob Jordan, grand champion hog showman; Laura Pullins, grand champion dairy steer and dairy feeder showman; Kylie Gheen, grand champion beef steer showman; Rebecca Pullins, grand champion beef feeder showman; Rachel Jackson, reserve champion rabbit showman; Jessica Parker, grand champion goat showman; Breanna Colburn, reserve champion sheep showman; and Jesse Morris, grand champion chicken showman.

Each participant entered the arena to show a hog, feeder calf, goat, lamb, rabbit and chicken, while being asked questions about the animals by Judge Sara McClaskey.

At the end of the event, Jacob Jordan was named the Showman of Showman, receiving a trophy, as well as other prizes.
