Livestock Judge Brian Horner

Brad Horner- Newton, IL

Junior Goats

Brad Horner will be judging our Market Goats and Wether Dam Doe Show. He is the Head of Growth and Strategy for UPL Inc. leading their North American team. He grew up raising and showing competitive livestock across the country. After his time on the livestock judging team at Lake Land College, he started judging his first shows. In the past 20 plus years, he has judged shows in 31 states across the US.

Along with his wife Sarah and 3 sons, Cole, Maddox and Maverik, they have raised and shown cattle, hogs and sheep and shown goats on both the state and national level. After a several year hiatus of not raising any livestock, and to focus on our careers, they now as a family have decided to start raising market lambs again. They have recently bought out his father’s flock – Horner Show Lambs and will be adding additional genetics and emphasize on quality not quantity.
