Experience: Logan Pate went to Nationals in Louisville, Ky. when he was 2 years old. He was hooked and has not stopped competing since. Goats are where it’s at for him. His latest awards include the Faulkner County Fair Reserve Champion for Breed Wether, Faulkner County Best of Show in Dairy and 7th place at the State Fair for Market Wether. He competes in Skillathon, Boer Breeding Stock, Market Wethers and Dairy Breeding Stock.
Do you have much competition in your division?
“Kind of. Faulkner County is a pretty tough division. But if you work hard and put dedication into it, you pull out a first.”
He admitted that although his older brother, Stephen Pate, is not in his division, he considers him the biggest competition. However, at home they work as a team and care for the other’s goats as their own. There might even be a hint of admiration from him for his older brother, who has plenty of wins to his name.
In the Future: Logan makes no pretenses. “I want to win more than my older brother.”
