Troy Applehans was born and raised in Colorado, involved in the registered and commercial cattle business. He actively participated in showing cattle at local, regional and national levels. He also was actively involved in livestock judging from a very young age. He attended Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College in Miami, Okla., where he earned his associate’s degree, prior to attending Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma and was a member of two National Champion Livestock Judging teams. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture, majoring in animal science/livestock merchandising.
Following graduation, Troy worked in Alabama for Cattle Today, Inc., a southeastern U.S. livestock publication where he was a livestock fieldman for eight years, assisting registered cattle producers in merchandising cattle and working as a ringman at over 2,000 auctions across the nation.
Troy then worked for the American Gelbvieh Association in Denver, Colo. and served as a regional director/fieldman. Following this, he was a business owner of Express Personnel Services in Plano, Texas. Following the sale of this business, he was on the procurement team for Future Beef Operations, purchasing both feeder cattle and calves, as well as directing quality control of cattle entering feedyards.
Troy started his career at CattleFax in late 2003. His responsibilities include covering cow-calf and stocker members in the southern plains and southeastern states, as well as feedyards in Colorado, western Nebraska and the corn-belt.
In addition to his duties at CattleFax, Troy continues to work registered cattle sales as a ringman, and runs cows and stocker cattle.
