 Nick Fitzsimmons 



Nick Fitzsimmons from Perry, Oklahoma.
Nick grew up on a Simmental seedstock operation in Western Iowa. Growing up exhibiting cattle across the country and livestock judging sparked a passion that eventually led him to Black Hawk East College and then onto Texas Tech University where he was on highly successful livestock judging teams.
After serving as the assistant livestock judging coach at Texas Tech, Nick took a position with Sunglo Feeds. Nick currently serves as a regional show feed specialist in the Oklahoma and Texas markets. Nick, along with his wife Ashley, son Lander and daughter Layne own and operate Fitz Genetics, a multi-faceted cattle operation, in Perry, Okla. Their operation strives to raise and sell high quality, functional cattle across multiple breeds. Nick has judged numerous state and national shows across the country. We are thrilled to have Nick as apart of our show this year!
