There are numerous components of the livestock industry: the producers and breeders, exhibitors, farmers, show supply companies, photographers, marketers, auctioneers... the list can go on an on. This month's Hall of Fame inductee is among one of the most valuable participants of our industry. We all know the importance of managing our project's weights. Bo is there at many of the nation's top livestock shows to ensure that everyone's livestock is weighed in accurately.
In 2000 Bo became the salesman for the scale side of W-W Livestock Systems quickly learning the livestock equipment/ rodeo side of the business and branching out to new horizons. The company was growing, and so were the demands on the sales and production, and the vision of a larger market. Bo has been travelling since long before that year, but the sales side of the company just seemed to mesh with his work weighing the livestock. He started in Houston, and San Antonio, and Denver’s National Western Stock Show and Rodeo, and rapidly branched out to Colorado State Fair, Aksarban River City Round-up in Omaha, Nebraska, American Royal in Kansas City, Missouri, Arkansas State Fair, in Little Rock, Arizona National Livestock Show in Phoenix, The Star of Texas in Austin, The World Pork Expo in Iowa, National FFA Conventions, and many local and distant stock shows, and fairs across the nation.
