93rd Little International


History & Purpose The North Dakota State University (NDSU) Saddle and Sirloin Club was organized on March 15, 1918 under the direction of J.H. Shepperd through the efforts of the livestock team that represented NDSU at the International Judging Contest in Chicago. They felt a need for an organization that would develop a great interest in animal husbandry at NDSU. The following year, due to war conditions, the club became inactive. The Saddle and Sirloin Club was reorganized under a new constitution in February 1922. Every year since, the club has presented its Little International Show. These are patterned after the International Livestock Show in Chicago, but differ in one respect; Little International is a contest in showmanship, not on the merits of particular animals. Every year, in conjunction with the Little International, the Saddle and Sirloin Club selects an outstanding individual in the field of agriculture. The Agriculturist of the Year is honored at the Hall of Fame Banquet and his/her portrait is hung in the Hall of Fame Gallery in Shepperd Arena on campus. Other club activities include: choosing Little International royalty, turkey sales, dances, Kiddie Days, participation in Homecoming activities, Ag Olympics, spring retreat, street cleanup and chili cook-off. Members of the livestock, meats, dairy and horse judging teams represent NDSU at several competitions across the country throughout the year. The club is now affiliated with the National Block and Bridle Club. NDSU Saddle and Sirloin sends members to national conference to associate with other similar organizations and gain new ideas and perspectives. A quote from M.L. Buchanan, a former NDSU Animal Science Chair, best sums up the objectives and purpose of the Saddle and Sirloin Club: “The varied activities of the club not only supplement the instructions in various fields of agriculture but gives the students an opportunity for experience in group activities and handling of organizational affairs not possible to obtain in the classroom.” “The Little International is primarily a livestock show. However, it is more than just a lively and entertaining educational feature. The University has, as one of its aims, promoted the arts, abilities and attitudes that will be useful throughout their student’s lives; qualities that will endure long after students have graduated from the institution. These are the attitudes the Little International fosters.” 93rd Little International

93rd Little International Agriculturalist of the Year

Dr. Susan Keller 6

93rd Little International


Dr. Susan Keller and her husband Dwight, along with their family live south of Mandan on Keller Broken Heart Ranch. Dr. Keller has put in many hours over the years on the ranch helping out with their registered Simmental and SimAngus cow-calf operation, along with helping her family hold a production sale every March. She has been a tremendous advocate for agriculture throughout her whole life and has instilled the passion for this industry into their three children, Luke (Katy), Jacob and Tessa. One of the many ways that she has inspired them to be passionate for agriculture is being involved in their 4-H and FFA careers and helping them out along the way, as a strong supporter of both of these organizations. Although Dr. Keller has been very involved in North Dakota agriculture, she was born and raised in northeastern Kansas on a ranch raising dairy and beef cattle, along with a variety of crops. She stayed in Kansas to attend veterinary school at Kansas State University and graduated in 1985. Not only is Dr. Keller a key part of Keller Broken Heart Ranch, she has been the State Veterinarian since 2004, serving the North Dakota State Board of Animal Health and the North Dakota Department of Agriculture. Before being asked to fill the position of the state veterinarian, she served the Board and the North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) as the deputy state veterinarian from 1997 to 2004. For the past 20 years her focus has been on protecting the health of livestock and animals in North Dakota and she works with the Board and the Animal Health Division to take necessary actions to prevent, control and eradicate contagious and infectious diseases. Dr. Keller also served as the vice president of the National Assembly of State Animal Health Officials (NASAHO) for two years and then served as the president of the NASAHO for another two years, which allowed her to expand North Dakota influence beyond the state’s borders. Before working for the state, Dr. Keller was employed at Midway Veterinary Clinic, Bowman Veterinary Clinic and owned and operated her own clinic from their ranch south of Mandan. Her 10 years in private practice motivate and guide her work as the state veterinarian. Dr. Keller hopes she has had some positive impacts on animal agriculture, but readily acknowledges that the coming generations in agriculture will continue to face new challenges and she strongly encourages young producers to never stop learning and to stay engaged. She is one of the most kind, humble and hardworking people there is. She is very deserving of this honor and will make a great addition to the Hall of Fame in Shepperd Arena on the campus of North Dakota State University. 93rd Little International

93rd Little International Manager

Kacey Koester Good evening and welcome to the 93rd Little International! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Shepperd Arena as we showcase the talents of our members for the 93rd time. NDSU Saddle and Sirloin members have prepared their animals, delivered their speeches and cured their hams, as well as spent countless hours shining Shepperd Arena, hanging streamers, and promoting this great event. My name is Kacey Koester and I have had the privilege to serve as Manager for the 93rd Little International. I am a Senior at NDSU majoring in Animal Science with a minor in Agribusiness. My parents are Steve and Tracey Koester and I have one younger sister, Shaye. I grew up on a ranch near Steele, ND where my family raises both registered and commercial Red Angus cattle. This year, our membership voted on Dr. Susan Keller as our Agriculturalist of the Year and I could not be more thrilled with their decision. Dr. Keller has made countless improvements to animal health in our state as well as shown true passion for agriculture and displayed that passion through her years of dedication to improving the industry of agriculture for not only our state, but the industry as a whole. Congratulations Dr. Keller! With “History in the Making� as the theme, I encourage you to take a glance at the Hall of Fame in Shepperd Arena that showcases those who created history and devoted their talents and time to the betterment of agriculture. As members compete tonight and promote animal husbandry, watch intently as they create their own history within themselves, this club and the industry of agriculture. I would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who makes this event possible. Saddle and Sirloin members have an incredible work ethic and true passion to put this event on, making my position so much fun. Thank you to our advisors! You are always excellent to work with and go above and beyond to help us in any way possible. I would also like to thank those of you in the stands who believe in this club and its members. Your support over the years is tremendous. As the stands of Shepperd are filled and the lights go down, sit back and enjoy the show as we present the 93rd Little International.

93rd Little International Assistant Manager

Larissa Feiring Good evening and welcome to the 93rd Little International! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Shepperd Arena where you see all of the hard work and dedication that the club members put in to make this event happen. Countless hours have been spent preparing animals, curing hams and practicing speeches for the past month, as well as promoting this event and cleaning Shepperd from top to bottom, hanging miles of streamers, and spreading hundreds of bags of chips across the arena. Let me introduce myself, my name is Larissa Feiring and I have the privilege of serving as this year’s Assistant Manager. I grew up on a ranch near McHenry, ND where my family raises commercial Angus cattle. My parents are Duane and Janell Feiring and I have two sisters, my older sister Kayla and younger sister Madison. I am a Junior this year majoring in Animal Science with a minor in Agribusiness. This year’s theme is “History in the Making” and it is a theme that anyone can relate to. Even though we may not realize it, we are making our own history each and every day. J.H. Shepperd probably did not think that he would be making history when he started the Saddle and Sirloin Club back in 1918 or when he started the Little International in 1922. The things that we do everyday for our family and ourselves could make an impact on not only in your life, but also in your family’s life. We all have a family history and a personal history, it is up to us to make it count! I would like to personally congratulate Dr. Susan Keller on being named the 93rd Little International Agriculturalist of the Year. Dr. Keller has shown her love for agriculture and animals from not only caring for large animals but also our companion animals. She has served the State Board of Animal Health by being the deputy state veterinarian and now the state veterinarian. Thank you, Dr. Keller, for your dedication to the health of the livestock and companion animals in our state! Additionally, I would like to thank all of the Saddle and Sirloin members and Little “I” participants; without your hard work, determination, and passion this living piece of history would not be possible. Also thank you to our advisors, you are always there to help with anything! To all the sponsors, parents and guests thank you for all of your support, without you, the Little International would not be the success that it is! I would also like to thank my family for pushing me out of my comfort zone! Without further delay, I encourage everyone to sit back and enjoy watching “History in the Making” during the 93rd Little International! 93rd Little International

Dylan Enger Greetings to all! On behalf of the Saddle and Sirloin Club, I would like to welcome you all to the 93rd Little International. What an exciting year it has been! Our members and contestants have been working diligently over the last few months to make sure the show runs smoothly.

I would like to take this time to thank all of the people who support the Saddle and Sirloin Club every year. Without all of this support, the show would not go on. I would also like to congratulate Little International Manager, Kacey Koester, on a successful year, as well as all of the contestants that are competing in the show, ham curing contest or public speaking event.

Bailey Erickson I would love to welcome you all to the 93rd Little International. Thank you for choosing to spend your time with us today! This amazing event is the product of hours upon hours of our Saddle and Sirloin Club members’ time. We are going to see some very talented livestock showmen all while honoring our Agriculturist of the Year, Dr. Susan Keller. Let me introduce myself. I am Bailey Erickson, a Junior majoring in Agribusiness with a minor in Business Administration. I grew up in Northwood, ND and now live in Beach, ND. I grew up with two dedicated individuals in agriculture for parents and spent many weekends hauled throughout the state to rodeos as I was growing up. I am proud to serve as one of your 93rd Little International Princesses. One of the most important parts of this evening is honoring our Agriculturalist of the Year. Dr. Susan Keller has shown true dedication to agriculture in this state and is highly deserving of the award. Her work and dedication has made history in North Dakota and beyond. Congratulations Dr. Keller! Soon, the arena will fill with our amazing contestants ready to demonstrate their showmanship skills. The club has carefully chosen “History in the Making” as the theme for the 93rd Little International. As the show ends and everyone heads home, there will be some serious history made tonight. North Dakota’s history runs deep in agriculture and will continue to do so for years to come. Thank you for coming to see all the hard work the Saddle and Sirloin Club has put in to host today’s show. I hope you all drive carefully on your return home. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the 93rd Little International!

Morgan Heidrich Hello and welcome to Shepperd Arena as we celebrate the 93rd Little International! It is my pleasure to welcome each and every one of you, as we witness the countless hours of hard work and preparation that the members of the Saddle and Sirloin Club have put into the 93rd Little International. Let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Morgan Heidrich and I am honored to represent our club as one of the 93rd Little International Princesses, as well as the Fundraising Chair. I am a Senior majoring in Biological Sciences Education. My parents are James and Mary Heidrich and I have one younger sister, Brooke. I grew up in Bismarck, ND and although I was not raised on a large farm/ranch operation, I still had the privilege of growing up in a rural setting, where we did a lot of the same things on a smaller scale. This taught me the value of what it means to work hard and be a caretaker of livestock and the land. This year’s theme “History in the Making” is a perfect representation of the history that continues to be made in Shepperd Arena. It is an incredible feeling to be a part of a club that continues to carry out the history and traditions year after year. The club is excited to celebrate with our Agriculturalist of the Year, Dr. Susan Keller. Dr. Keller has lived a humble lifestyle by giving her time and sharing her wisdom with others. Her involvement in the agricultural industry has not only impacted the members of this club, but fellow agriculturists as well. The Saddle and Sirloin Club recognizes the qualities that Dr. Keller displays, which in turn, has earned her a rightful place in the Shepperd Arena Hall of Fame. Please join me in congratulating the 93rd Agriculturalist of the Year, Dr. Susan Keller! I would like to extend a thank you for attending the show. I would also like to thank the members of this club, advisors and participants for working countless hours to ensure that history continues to be made. Also, to our sponsors, alumni, families and friends: without your continued support, the Little International would not be nearly as successful as it is. Now, I invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy this incredible show! 93rd Little International

Marissa Tuhy & Troy Wiegandt Good evening ladies and gentlemen! It is a great privilege to welcome you to the 93rd Little International. The Saddle & Sirloin Club members have put in countless hours over the past months with dreams of making this event a success. Tonight, our contestants’ hard work and preparation will be showcased on the arena floor. For some, this will be their first time entering the ring. While for others, it will be their last. Regardless, we have all come together to bring the time-honored tradition of the Little International to life for you to witness. This year’s theme is “History in the Making.” Tonight, we will celebrate the past and look forward to the future of the Agriculture Industry. Our students are creating history each day, but none of our efforts would be possible without the guidance and knowledge of those who came before us. We graciously acknowledge many individuals, but tonight, we are especially honored to recognize Dr. Susan Keller. Her years of work as the North Dakota State Veterinarian have been inspiring to many and she truly has created history. We are proud to honor Susan Keller as the 93rd Little International Agriculturalist of the Year. We are tonight’s Masters of Ceremonies and we are both thrilled to be here with you tonight. I am Marissa Tuhy, daughter of Cory and Melinda Tuhy of South Heart, ND. I am a Junior double majoring in Management Communications and Agricultural Economics and minors in Business Administration and General Agriculture. I am also serving as one of the Special Events & Flowers co-chairs for this year’s Little International. My co-host tonight is Troy Wiegandt. Troy is the son of Mark and Leslie Wiegandt of Larimore, ND. He is a Junior majoring in Agricultural Economics with a minor in Crop and Weed Science. Troy has been a very active Saddle and Sirloin Club member in his time here at NDSU. He has participated in chili cookoff, kiddie days and has been a beef contestant twice. Troy is also a member of the Agribusiness Club. We are thrilled to serve as your Masters of Ceremonies for the 93rd Little International. We will keep you entertained and informed on the contestants and classes. Thank you for joining us tonight and showing your support to the Saddle and Sirloin Club.

Saddle & Sirloin Advisors

Kendall Swanson, Eric Berg, Jim Kirsch & Skip Anderson

View From the Front Hello Alumni, Planning for the 93rd Little International has been underway since the conclusion of last year’s show. The dedication that the members have already displayed to bring you one of the very best Little Internationals has been rewarding for the advisors. The theme for this year’s Little International is “History in the Making”. One can only imagine the impression that J.H. Shepperd would have now on the scope that the NDSU Little International has attained. When he came back from the International Judging Contest in Chicago in 1918 would he have imagined that a large majority of club members coming from the states surrounding North Dakota and be comprised of very talented and gifted ladies that hold prominent offices in the club. His foresight and determination to develop and sustain an interest in animal husbandry by students has been paramount. The Little International has given this opportunity to hundreds of students each and every year. We hope that you will be able to attend the 93rd Little International on February 8 and 9. The Agriculturalist of the Year banquet will be held again on Friday at the Avalon Event Center. This year’s Agriculturalist of the Year is Dr. Susan Keller, a person who has helped to mold the fabric of North Dakota animal agriculture and veterinary medicine. The morning show will begin at 8:00 am with the evening performance beginning at 5:00 pm on Saturday in Shepperd Arena. Thank you for your continued support of NDSU and the Saddle and Sirloin Club. Hope to see everyone from the front row and with your presence, history will be made!

North Dakota State University President

Dr. Dean Bresciani Friends of the Little International – Welcome to the historic annual “Little I,” this year in its 93rd consecutive year – which makes it the oldest student tradition at NDSU! I feel fortunate to be in my ninth year as the President of our university, and there are few, if any events I more look forward to. As you may know, our institutional heritage is based on the Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862, which set in motion development of the most successful public higher education system in the world. That act was intended at its core to advance agriculture and the mechanical arts (engineering) as a means to unlock the economic potentials of our country. With the establishment of the North Dakota Agricultural College in 1890 (what would later become NDSU), we became and remain one of the most classic examples of what was intended by the Morrill Land Grant Act – we are a student focused, land-grant, research university. Our mission is to serve our citizens through what we do, and we’re very proud of that responsibility and the contributions we make. Since our founding, NDSU has certainly grown in size and breadth. By a considerable margin we now host the state’s largest full-time student enrollment. We have steadily increased in national ranking are now the 86th ranked public university in the nation (124th of the overall 3500 colleges and universities in the U.S.). We annually produce over $156 million dollars of research and creative activity, and we have faculty and staff assigned to and serving North Dakotans in every county of the state. Worth noting, the breadth of how we contribute is not limited to agriculture and engineering, but has broadened to include health professions through the liberal arts. That all said, Little International remains an all-student organized tradition and is the distillation of who we are and what we’re about. Thank you for joining us at Little International this year. It is an educational experience, proud university tradition, livestock show, competition and awards ceremony all rolled in to a multi-day event our extended campus family enjoys. I look forward to seeing you at Little International! Sincerely, Dean L. Bresciani, President

Associate Vice President for Agricultural Affairs

Dr. Greg Lardy Welcome to the 93rd annual Little International! I am excited to welcome you to an event that holds very special memories for many current and former NDSU students, staff and faculty. As a former Saddle and Sirloin member and former advisor, I have fond memories of the Saddle and Sirloin Club and of the Little International. I hope your visit to our campus and to the Little International is exciting and meaningful. The College of Agriculture, Food Systems and Natural Resources takes pride in offering excellent curriculums in animal science, equine science and veterinary technology and in a variety of other majors which are designed to prepare our students for exciting careers in agriculture. I thank our faculty and staff for their dedication to students each day in the classroom, as advisors and as lifelong mentors. This year’s theme for Little International is “History in the Making.” The Hall of Fame portraits that hang in Shepperd Arena definitely hold true to this theme. The students participating in this year’s Little International will go on to make history with their accomplishments in the future! The industry leaders who are in the Hall of Fame have inspired generations of Saddle and Sirloin Club members. In the future, I am confident that you will also see portraits from this group of students hanging in the Hall of Fame. The success they achieve after they leave NDSU will be because they possess the same qualities as the honorees now in the Hall of Fame. As I interact with our students, and Saddle and Sirloin Club members, I am impressed by their dedication to agriculture and to making an effort to better the world around them. Congratulations to Dr. Susan Keller on being named this year’s Agriculturalist of the Year. Dr. Keller has made significant contributions to the livestock industry through her service as the State Veterinarian. Her efforts to safeguard our state’s herds and flocks through sound policy actions are indicative of her caring, professional approach to serving the industry which she loves. Susan, thank you for your dedicated service. Thanks again to the Saddle and Sirloin Club for organizing a great event. Best of luck to all of the participants and student leaders who will make the 93rd Little International a huge success!

Animal Science Department Head

Dr. Marc Bauer Welcome to the 93rd Little International! I always look forward to this annual event, especially seeing alumni and friends. I hope your visit to campus, whether among your first or one of many, and to Little International is exciting and meaningful. I know local families that look forward to this event. If you come from many miles away, a special welcome to you. Our department takes great pride in offering excellent curriculum in animal science, equine science and veterinary technology. The curriculum is not only designed to prepare our students for a variety of careers in animal industries but also to hone their soft skills, enabling one to interact effectively and agreeably with others. Our faculty are dedicated to teaching and learning. They are embracing more effective learning environments and incorporating novel teaching strategies to maximize student engagement. Animal Sciences faculty are also the best advisors in the university, dedicated to their students inside and outside of their offices. They spend time pouring over classes in addition to advising a variety of co-curricular groups and clubs across campus. They also spend many hours in vans traveling with student groups, judging teams, equestrian teams, the rodeo team, the academic quadrathlon team and study tours. These activities help shape our students and give them opportunities to practice skills, some taught in class and others honed by interacting with peers who push each other to excellence. This year’s Little International theme is “History in the Making.” The students of the 93rd Little International are setting the stage for the future while fondly remembering the past. There are and will be many leaders among the members of Saddle and Sirloin club and participants of the Little International. Leaders will be in many different facets of agriculture, and some will be in non-agricultural leadership positions. All will fondly remember their time at the 93rd Little International. The Hall of Fame honoree this year is Dr. Susan Keller. Dr. Keller’s leadership in the state runs deep and the honor is well deserved. As the state veterinarian, Dr. Keller has expertly shepherded the state’s livestock industries for many years. In 2019, we also celebrate the milestone of Dr. Keller being named the second lone woman to receive this award, 43 years after the first, attesting to her leadership and public service. Congratulations, Dr. Keller, on being named the 2019 Agriculturalist of the Year. Thank you to the Saddle and Sirloin Club for organizing another great event. To the participants, good luck and may your animals behave and respond to your cues.

Novice Showmanship The Novice Showmanship division of the Little International occurs in conjunction with the regular showmanship competitions. Exhibitors that have never shown a particular species, but are interested in trying it for the first time, request a novice standing when signing up. These students are judged at the same time as all other participants. The novice division gives newcomers the opportunity to learn how to handle a species they are not accustomed to while competing with others at their own level.

A novice is indicated by an “N� after the contestant number in the book as well as on the exhibitor’s back tag.

Beef Showmanship Today, the beef showperson is more than just a handler, he or she must be an artist and a sculptor attempting to minimize the animal’s faults and mold it into the perfect calf. The show person attempts this through halter breaking, washing, blowing, clipping and fitting. The show person is judged on their ability to handle the calf, cleanliness, and overall appearance of the animal. The poise and demeanor of the showperson often dictates how the calf will respond in the ring.

Sheep Showmanship Sheep Showmanship is a balance of show ring conduct and animal appearance. Hours upon hours of washing, carding and meticulous clipping are all vital steps in preparing each ewe for the show. Every showman evaluates their animal and works to disguise the animal’s faults during the fitting process. In the ring, the ideal showman presents their ewe to the best of their ability while remaining calm and confident.

Ham Curing Ham Curing requires its contestants to be accurate and precise. The contestants start with a plain ham. They need to collar, inject and rub the ham themselves, making sure that the cure is distributed evenly throughout the meat. Hams are then smoked. Finally, it is the contestant’s job to decorate the hams to improve appearance. The top ten are then auctioned off during the night show.

Saddle and Sirloin

Club Activities Welcome Back Grill Out Among the chaos that surrounds the first couple weeks of school, the Saddle and Sirloin Club officers welcome back members by having a grill out. Food, games, and laughter are part of the picnic. Homecoming Saddle and Sirloin participated in the annual Homecoming festivities once again this fall. Participation included members creating an outstanding float for members to ride on in the Friday night parade and cheering on our very own Little I Manager, Kacey Koester, as she represented the Saddle and Sirloin Club on the Homecoming Court and competed for Queen.

Saddle and Sirloin

Club Activities Ag Olympics The Saddle and Sirloin Ag Olympics is always a memorable activity. The night kicked off with a chili making competition where teams made their own chili with special ingredients. The chili’s were judged by a panel who chose the winning chili. After everyone ate, the members competed in different games such as a relay race, tug of war and pop the balloon.

Streamer Day See those crepe paper streamers hung from the ceiling of Shepperd Arena? The Wednesday of Little “I” week, members set their alarms for 4 a.m. to begin laying out and hanging streamers. The club uses over 30 miles of streamers and usually finishes in the evening of the weekly meeting. 93rd Little International

Saddle and Sirloin

Club Activities Turkey Sales Every November, Saddle and Sirloin sells its famous turkeys. This fundraiser is an opportunity to raise money for Little “I” and those members that attend the National Block and Bridle Conference. Sadia Zafar, Erik Johnson, and Monica Fitterer tackled the project as this year’s co-chairs and helped us sell nearly 700 turkeys!

Kiddie Days Kiddie Days is a yearly event held each spring in Shepperd Arena. Daycare centers, preschoolers and parents bring their children to get a glimpse of farm life and play with some animals, too! Kiddie Days is organized by two co-chairs who coordinate times for members to help, schedule the children to come visit, and make sure the animals are in the arena.

Judging Club The NDSU Judging Club is an organization of past, present and future members of the livestock, meats, dairy and horse judging teams. The group strives to ensure the continuation of all judging teams of NDSU. The NDSU Judging Club sponsors an important event that educates young people about the livestock industry and sparks interactions by young adults who aspire to be leaders in agriculture. The major activity is the judging contest held in conjunction with Little International each year. Young individuals gain experience in evaluating livestock and presenting oral reasons. The students judge seven classes (including keep/cull) and give three sets of oral reasons. Finally, the club plays an important role at the North Star Classic in Valley City, ND. The senior general livestock judging team holds a mock workout for local 4-H and FFA students, teaching them the tricks of the trade in the livestock judging world. Also, once again, the judging club members worked diligently to organize a successful NSC Steer Showdown. The Judging Club is also selling raffle tickets for a raffle heifer that has been donated by a North Dakota breeder.
