Excitement Builds as over 22,000 Entries Get Ready for the Oklahoma Youth Expo The stage is set for the 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo coming up March 10th through the 20th at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds. Kass Newell, Executive Vice President of this years Oklahoma Youth Expo says they are excited, "We're moving into the fairgrounds tomorrow and getting ready for all the exhibitors from all over the state for the Worlds largest junior livestock show."

7,100 Oklahoma exhibitors are entered to exhibit with just over 22,000 head of cattle, sheep, goats and swine at this year’s OYE.

“It always amazes me how much our Oklahoma families value raising their kids through showing livestock,” Newell said.

New this year is the addition of the Ag Mechanics contest, which provides 4-H and FFA members who may not wish to show livestock an opportunity to compete at OYE.
