Stockshow Confidential is an informative and entertaining look into the stock show circuit. Each week Stockshow Confidential will take a look at all aspects of showing livestock; from finding the right animal to showing it at one of the many stock shows across the nation. We will touch on topics such as purchasing, feeding, grooming and of course showmanship. Along the way viewers will meet some of the top breeders and judges in the country who will share a wealth of information, making you better in the show ring. Each Episode will also have a special “Tips from the Vet” feature that will provide a firsthand look at diseases, treatment and prevention.
Whether you are a seasoned showman, or a first time exhibitor, Stockshow Confidential will illustrate the excitement of showing that Grand Champion animal.
