Doug Schueler was a member of the West Point Junior Farmers for 9 years. He was an avid swine project member and enjoyed showing his pigs at the Butler County Fair throughout his 4H career. Doug was also a member of the swine judging team while in high school.
Doug showed swine at the Iowa State Fair the year he was a senior and took home Reserve Champion Hog overall honors. Quite an honor for this rural Iowa farm boy!
He later volunteered as leader of the West Point Junior Farmers 4H Club for many years while his son was a member and afterwards. Doug was instrumental in getting a Quiz Bowl organized during the swine show at the fair. He served a number of years on the 4H & Youth Committee, responsible for setting 4H policies for Butler County 4H.
For many years Doug served as swine superintendent for the Butler County Fair. He kept agreeing to “one more year” up until this year when his new job caused him to “retire”.
Currently, Doug works for the company, Hypor, as a swine genetics representative and travels often.
While he may no longer be a fixture in the show ring during the swine show, Doug’s influence and leadership continue to guide the show. He is also a strong supporter of the 4H Foundation.
Butler County is thrilled and honored to have Doug Schueler as their 2014 4-H Hall of Fame inductee!
