OFI 1597: Moving Out Of State To Judge Livestock | FFA SAE Edition | Lizzie Schafer | Taylorville High School FFA
Lizzie Schafer is a 2022 National Proficiency Winner in the category of Beef Placement. Lizzie and her brother have been showing cattle nationally for their family farm for several years now, both from a competitive standpoint and in an effort to market their genetics. Over the years, Lizzie has taken on more and more of the responsibility of the cattle side of their families farm, including become the herd manager and making many of the major decisions about their cattle business.
Lizzie was recruited by several colleges for livestock judging during high school. Ultimately, she chose to being her college career at Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kanas. Lizzie told me that livestock judging is the #1 sport on that campus, and they take care of their livestock judging students very well. She is studying agricultural communications and hopes to be standing outside of the show arena waiting to interview the winners and tell their stories at some point in the future.
