Young Consignor

Ya’ll know how much we love helping young people. I find that I have so many people that have helped me out, shaped me into the person I am, and gave me guidance that I have to do the same in return. Of course, in this business we get plenty of opportunties to do so through the American Junior Simmental Association and state association events we are affiliated with. Not to mention the FFA which is very near and dear to our heart.

Meet Matt Koverman.

The youngest consignor at the 2013 Ohio Beef Expo!

Matt consigned a daughter of Cinderella and Trademark to the Ohio Beef Expo. He even filled the nomination form out online all by himself. His heifer sold for $4,100 and went to Gonsior Simmentals in Nebraska. His family is super nice and supportive. This is one of their first ventures into the Simmental breed, so we hope that Matt is hooked! We hope they continue to be apart of the Ohio Beef Expo and the Simmental industry for a long time!

Dad also employeed him for the next 5 years at the Ohio Beef Expo. I think by then he will be 15.

He couldn’t leave the Ohio Beef Expo without a new DP hat. He was pretty excited about it. Thats what it is all about – making the young kids excited about the Simmental breed!
