We caught up with judge Slayton Strube before he steps “Inside the Ring” at the Aksarben Stock Show. We invite you to read our candid interview with Slayton below and please continue to check back often for our next edition of “Inside the Ring.”
WHO GOT YOU INVOLVED IN THE LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY AND HOW?
My family has deep roots in the livestock business. However, I would say it’s primarily my Dad that had me exposed to livestock at an early age. I was exposed to the commercial side as well as the show side.
WHAT IS A DREAM YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO ACCOMPLISH?
I would have to say my dreams/goals continue to change as I mature as a person. I have been very fortunate to accomplish many of these and much more. More importantly though, being a follower of Jesus and a loving husband and father really completes my most valued accomplishments.
WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO WHERE YOU CURRENTLY LIVE?
San Angelo Texas. I was raised here and call it home. It’s a great place to raise a family because of the quality of people.
WHAT IS A PET PEEVE OF YOURS IN THE RING?
Bad attitudes and rude facial expressions.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SHEEP YOU’VE EVER SEEN?
Honestly, I don’t have one that comes to mind and that doesn’t discount some really impressive ones I’ve seen. However, I think it’s more of a mindset to always find and see the next great one.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE ROAD TRIP SNACK?
SHOWING BY WEIGHTS OR BY BREEDS?
STATE FAIRS OR NATIONAL SHOWS?
EVALUATING STOCK ON THE MOVE OR ON THE PROFILE?
On the Move
