Curt Pate

For more than a decade, Curt Pate has been conducting demonstrations and clinics on stockmanship, colt starting, horsemanship and safety. His abilities conducting both horsemanship and stockmanship demonstrations along with his ability as an effective communicator have made him a sought after clinician both on the national and international scene. His personal experience incorporating effective stockmanship principles supports a “for profit” mindset and focuses on highlighting the increased economic benefits of handling stock correctly. In addition, Curt recognizes the growing public scrutiny surrounding livestock production and the impact that improved livestock handling practices create for the sustainability of the cattle industry.

John Rose

John Rose is owner and manager of Rose Cattle Company. He grew up in Jerome, Idaho on a pure bred ranch. This is where his love for cattle and the industry started. John is a graduate of Cal Poly University with a degree in animal science. He moved to Three Forks, MT where he started Rose Cattle Company. John has a great eye for cattle and always strives to buy the best of the best. His buyers and sellers have become his friends over the past few years and he looks forward to working with you in the future. In his spare time (which is very limited) he spends time watching his children in their activities and working his stock dogs.

Meet our Emcees

Jeff “Tigger” Erhardt

Jeff “Tigger” Erhardt grew up on a commercial cow/calf operation, and has been in the cattle business every day of his life. He has been involved in many aspects of cattle production from heifer development, to marketing seedstock, to ranch and production sale management and promotion.  Most know him being a professional speaker/entertainer, a professional rodeo announcer, and co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show, “Ranch It Up”, which can be heard on Sirius XM Channel 147, many AM/FM public radio stations and as a podcast. Tigger’s slogan is “The Voice To Be Heard!”.  And after listening to him speak just once, you will know why.

Rebecca “Bec” Warner

Rebecca “Bec” Wanner may best be described as an Agriculture Advocate. She was ranch raised, the oldest child and only girl, on her family’s large cow-calf commercial cattle ranch, the Knife River Ranch. Rebecca has been involved in all aspects of the ranching world, droughts to prices and cattle contracts to diversification. These experiences resulted in Rebecca becoming a strong advocate for both Agriculture and Conservation. Having been an outdoor enthusiast her whole, Bec hosts a national radio show “The Bend” on SiriusXM 147 and AM/FM. Inspired and empowered by the outdoors is the theme on this nationally syndicated radio show. Bec shares stories for all to relate, laugh and feel motivated to take on that lifelong dream or next chapter outdoors.
