The McGuires started in the mid 1980's with birds from Mike Colorato, who started with a male from Clifford Williams and hens from Erv Panzer. Incidently, the Coloratos have become active in the ASC again. Ivan is well on the way to becoming an ASC judge. In addition to their 10 ASC Best in Show wins, the McGuires have had two Kellogg winners and one ASC Grand Champion.
