Dr. Roger E. Hunsley
Roger "Doc" Hunsley has had a tremendous impact on the state of Indiana as a key resource for the education and development of people and livestock. As the Purdue University Livestock Judging Team Coach from 1967 through 1983, Dr. Hunsley coached three National Champion Teams in 1971, 1973, and 1978. Through the judging team and the beef production course, Dr. Hunsley taught how to make sound decisions and how to stand up and justify those decisions. This education and lesson has carried over to many of "Doc's" very successful former students. He demanded hard work, dedication, and an intense best effort that transmitted into the "pride" factor that Dr. Hunsley is most remembered for by all of his students.
As a livestock evaluator, many consider Dr. Hunsley as one of the best in the country and internationally. His knowledge and foresight caused the industry to address its challenges and work toward making a better product for the industry and the people it serves. Since serving as the Executive Secretary of the American Shorthorn Association the breed has built a strong identity and has the largest breeding cattle show at the North American International Livestock Show.
Dr. Roger Hunsley is a true leader and educator for the livestock industry. Congratulations and thank you for the lasting impact you have had on the people and livestock in Indiana.
