Ladies in the Lead ... Meet Tess MIttag

In this week's episode we meet Miss Tess Mittag. As Manager of StockShow University, with Sullivan's Show Supply, we find Tess ...EVERYWHERE! Between running the fitting clinics, handing out the Junior Giveaways, and updating the Pulse, I was lucky enough to catch up with her at the Iowa Beef Expo.

Tess grew up in SouthWest Iowa, showing livestock from the 2nd grade. Cattle, sheep, and hogs filled the barn but Tess knew from a young age that Education was where her heart would take her. She attended Northwest Missouri State, earned her Ag Education degree and started teaching. Miss Mittag, as her students will always call her, transformed lives, set high expectations, and created opportunities. She loved each of her students like one of her own. But when the opportunity to join Sullivan's came about, she saw the chance to match her passion with her daily life.

Tess has a drive that comes from building relationships and making an impact. She loves after a weekend at StockShow U, juniors say 'thank you' and feel like family. She'll encourage anyone to attend a Junior Nationals, always ask ask ask, and find a mentor to help you along the way. Tess reminds us, "We get better when everyone gets better!"

Her secret passion, Tik Tok, find her I promise you, you won't be disappointed. So let's get started... Miss Tess MIttag!
