     Lampasas Cattle Auction has become our family business and we are committed to treat every consignor with equal respect and ensure that each head sold brings its full value.

     I grew up in Illinois with a dream to be an auctioneer.  I sold my first sale at the age of 12.  Being a team roper and auctioneer with ranching aspirations and the possibility of a rodeo career, I made my way to Texas.  In 2007, I made the move from Catlin, Illinois to Priddy, TX.  I began ranching and was able to auctioneer at several different barns.  While working at various sale barns, I came up with the idea of a roping cattle sale and produced my first one in 2012.  The idea took off and grew to the point that I needed a permanent home and we purchased Lampasas Cattle Auction in January of 2019.

     My enthusiasm for auctioneering prompted me to compete in the World Livestock Auctioneer Championships and I qualified for the finals in 2020.  Unfortunately, it was postponed due to Covid, so I hope to have the opportunity to compete again in 2021.
