Show Time: Saturday at 9:30 am upstairs in the main pavilion. Judging is open to the public, and questions are welcomed.

Judge: Lisa Grzeskowiak Marysville, OH.

Lisa Grzeskowiak lives on a small farm in Marysville, OH with her husband Jeff. On their farm reside goats, sheep, horses, a donkey, ducks, chickens, bees, a Weimeraner and two Italian Maremmas to watch over everybody. Her love of goats was born when her now grown children decided that goats were the cutest animal at the county fair and wanted to take the project the following year. When her kids (human kids) were ready to head to college, she knew she did not want a barn without the ever entertaining goats so the search began to find just the right breed. After much research, Pygora goats seemed to be the perfect fit. Lisa bought her first starter flock in 2009. Never having picked up knitting needles, crochet hooks or any fiber art tool, she jumped in with both feet to learn everything she could about the fiber world and these beautiful luxury fiber producing animals.

 

Lisa was a 4H advisor for 9 years for a dog club where the spark for teaching and judging started. After receiving her judges license, Lisa has judged shows in Michigan, Virginia and Oregon. She believes the best tool to understanding your flocks strengths and weaknesses is to process your own fiber, at least part of each fleece. Secondly, go to shows whether participating in the show ring, volunteering or as a spectator, producers like to talk about their animals!

 

Lisa is honored to be asked to judge at OFFF which happens to be the very first show in which she participated as a Pygora goat owner 10 years ago.
