Thirty Four Oklahoma Youth Grabbed Top Honors at Junior National Beef Breed Shows This Summer- Oklahoma Salutes Them at the Capitol

Fri, 05 Aug 2022 04:29:31 CDT

Thirty Four Oklahoma Youth Grabbed Top Honors at Junior National Beef Breed Shows This Summer- Oklahoma Salutes Them at the Capitol The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture did the research in checking with the Beef Breeds across the country and determining which young people had the best of the best in the many Junior National Cattle Shows from across the US here in the summer of 2022. Oklahoma Ag Secretary Blayne Arthur thought there might be a dozen or so winners and she was looking forward to bringing them to the State Capitol to honor them. But- as the numbers were added up- it was a lot more than just ten or twelve.


Based on the survey of the Beef Breed Associations- Oklahoma has had 34 young people who brought home a Champion or a Reserve Champion banner from a national cattle show this summer.


A celebration was planned by Oklahoma State Secretary of Ag Blayne Arthur and her ODAFF team- and that included taking pictures of the young people on the steps of the State Capitol- and for the winners to hear in person congratulations from Governor Kevin Stitt, as well as several State Lawmakers. The crowd that gathered on Thursday filled the Governor's Blue Room as the group received citations from many state lawmakers and then waited for the Governor.


The 34 Champions represent several hundred young Oklahomans who have traveled to multiple states for these summer shows here in 2022.


Senior Farm and Ranch Broadcaster Ron Hays spent time with the young people and their families on Thursday- and talked to two of the "old hands" when it came to the show ring- and two of the members of the Oklahoma Department of Ag Youth Council for the coming year- Morley Griffith of Shawnee and Turner Longacre of Bristow. You can hear their stories by clicking on the Listen Bar at the bottom of the list of award winners.
