Nick Hammett, along with his family, resides in Ashland, MO. In 2013, they began raising and showcasing ABGA registered goats throughout the country under the name of Cola Show Goats. They rebranded themselves in 2020 as Hammett Showstock, focusing on raising wethers and commercial show doe prospects.
Nick's career in the beef industry started after obtaining degrees from the University of Missouri and Colorado State University. He now works for Neogen, where he markets beef cattle genomic testing. His passion is to help producers transform data into sustainable and profitable management decisions, and he hopes to offer these same opportunities to the goat industry.
Nick has judged many shows, including the ABGA National Open show in 2018, the National Market and Commercial Doe show in 2021, and the first National Carcass contest in 2022.
