Foundation BOD-Sharon Inloes

Board Member

Sharon was born and raised in Weld and Larimer Counties where her family raised Angus cattle, milked Holstein cows, and had a variety of cow and draft horses.  She began 4-H in Weld County and, after her family moved to Wellington, continued her 4-H career in Larimer County. Sharon attended, and later worked at Colorado State University for 33-1/2 years. During her tenure at CSU, she worked for Cooperative Extension in the Departments of Entomology, Agronomy, Animal Sciences, and Agricultural Engineering.

Sharon coordinated Livestock judging contests locally and at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS), and was the first to try computer tabulation at these contests. For 25 years she worked in the “Yards” at NWSS in addition to helping coordinate and conduct the Collegiate and 4-H/FFA judging contests.

Locally, Sharon served as one of the show managers of the Rocky Mountain Junior Beef Expo and helped with the Weld County Livestock Association Feedlot and Carcass contest. She still loves rodeos, fairs, and kids that compete in these venues.
