Geof Ruppert - Wool Show Judge

Dr. Geof Ruppert is a shepherd and companion animal veterinarian from Fairfield, Pennsylvania. He has been raising purebred Corriedales since the late ’70s and keeps a separate grade flock of fine wool sheep. The farm caters to the handspinning market, and Dr. Ruppert has been conducting an artificial insemination program since 2001 to improve the wool in the flock using Australian sires.

Dr. Ruppert got started judging sheep in the ’90s on the Maryland State 4-H livestock judging team. Over the years, he has served as judge for the Black Sheep Gathering, the National Corriedale Junior Show and the National Merino Sale, among others, and has judged Corriedale junior sheep twice at Bendigo, Australia, the world’s largest sheep show.

As a judge, Geof believes in following the score card of each breed closely. He is an advocate for good breed character within each breed, and for placing emphasis on sound wool quality in the dual purpose and natural colored sheep classes.

As a shepherd, Geof has been awarded Supreme Champion at Maryland Sheep and Wool multiple times.  He has also won Best Fleeced sheep at the National Corriedale Show and many times at Maryland.  His handspinning Corriedale and fine wool fleeces sell out every year.
