Keith Topp, Botkins, Ohio, has been selected to judge the International Jersey Show in Madison, Wis., on October 3-4, 2022. He was nominated and voted on by the 2021 Dairy Cattle Show Exhibitors of World Dairy Expo.
Topp has placed numerous Jersey shows during his judging career, including two at the All American Jersey events – the All American Jersey Show in 2019 and the National Jersey Jug Futurity in 2017. In addition he has placed numerous colored breed shows across the U.S. including the 2017 World Dairy Expo Brown Swiss Show; the Big E Brown Swiss Show in 2015; and the Indiana, Missouri, Minnesota and New York State Fair shows that same year. His dairy roots have been strong in the Brown Swiss breed, but for nearly a decade he and his family, wife Kendra and children Keaton and Kinley, have also shown Jerseys at the state and national levels.
