Mike has officiated the World Dairy Expo Jersey Show, World Dairy Expo Holstein Show, and the Royal Winter Fair Jersey Show. In addition, he has officiated for numerous state shows across the country.

Selected to place the oldest and richest class for dairy cattle in the world is Ron Mosser, Geneva, Ind. He will judge the 71st National Jersey Jug Futurity on November 10. This will be his debut as a judge in the Jersey ring at the All American events. Ron is no stranger to the green shavings as he has judged numerous other breeds in Louisville as well as World Dairy Expo and the Eastern States Exposition. In addition, he has judged internationally in Argentina, Canada, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala and Brazil. For the past 22 years, he has been a Type Traits Appraiser for the American Jersey Cattle Association.

There are 551 three-year-olds currently eligible for the 2024 National Jersey Jug Futurity. Last year, the show offered a grand total of $10,885 in premiums, with the winner receiving a check for $3,005.

In addition, he was high individual in the National 4-H judging contest in 2009 and judged at the Royal Highland Show in Scotland in 2010.
