STAFF CONTACTS

The Show Circuit is a livestock-oriented publication that centers around cattle ranchers, club calf producers, and livestock shows. Our readership encompasses a broad group of agriculture enthusiasts. Between our magazine subscribers, SC2Day blog, online viewers and social media following, we have over 50,000 people who view our magazine and social media. We also hand-deliver thousands of copies of our magazine to many livestock shows and state fairs throughout the year. Our magazine’s advertisements include show cattle producers, as well as contract advertisers in equipment, trailers, feed and supplements, photographers and more! The Show Circuit’s editorial features young exhibitors from across the country in our “On & Off The Circuit” column as well as official point standings and current news for leading state junior livestock/club calf associations. Our monthly features also address relevant animal health, nutrition and marketing issues for cattle breeders as well as some personal financial topics. We also profile leading club-calf producers in our pages and address fun topics all exhibitors can relate to. We also easily publish more show results from across the country than any other publication in the business. If it has to do with raising, breeding or showing cattle you’ll find timely, practical information about it in The Show Circuit. To top it off, we also have our blog - SC2Day! With important and timely information about the industry and a whole lot of fun features, upcoming events, photos and videos, this blog is a daily must-visit destination online. SC headquarters are in Illinois, and we also have staff members in Iowa, and Ohio. If you have any questions, please be sure to contact any of our knowlegeable and helpful staff. We’re here to assist you!
