Blake Kennedy Has High Expectations for the 2022 OYE Night of Stars Gilt SaleWed, 16 Mar 2022 04:05:46 CDT
The 2022 Oklahoma Youth Expo's Night of Stars Gilt Sale is coming together- and Blake Kennedy with Kennedy Ventures says he is excited about the gilts lined up for the sale that will happen Wednesdsay evening at the OKC Fairgrounds in Building 8. He told Oklahoma Farm Report's Ron Hays "this year we are selling 130 of probably the most elite gilts we have ever been able to offer- that's hard to say with the record setting sale we had last year."
The bar was set high in 2021 with the gilts in the Night of Stars Sale bringing just over one million dollars. Kennedy says "I would love to tell you we were going to break that- but we don't know- but the quality is there. Already the phone has been ringing off the hook the last two days" as prospective buyers wanting to put bids in on their gilts of choice.
