Q&A with Carl Phoenix
What has been your most memorable judging experience so far?
Being the Associate Judge for the Holstein Show at Madison in 2017. The caliber of cattle at that show is so incredible. It seems totally unreal to be at the center of the ring at WDE, but it’s so much fun! Just awesome! As the associate you don’t have as much of the pressure and still get to see all the great cows, I’m trying not to think about this fall!
Who is your favorite cow of all time? One that you’ve judged and/or one that you admire?
My favourite cow of all time is Thrulane James Rose because she was a modern cow that really changed things in the breed. Rosiers Blexy Goldwyn is my favourite cow I’ve judged so far.
What do you love most about judging?
I like the traveling, seeing new countries and the people you meet along the way. I’ve traveled to Brazil, Ireland, a few US states and almost every Canadian province.
What are you looking for in your winners?
I like functional feet and legs, good sound udders and good functional rumps. I prefer to keep it simple!
