Johnna Stottlemyre of Luther Shows Supreme Champion Kid Doe at 2012 OYEMon, 12 Mar 2012 05:52:01 CDT
The first weekend of showing animals at the Oklahoma Youth Expo is now under the belt of new Executive Director Tyler Norvell- and he told Farm Director Ron Hays that he was pleased with how everyone was coping with the extremely difficult conditions the 2012 show is facing with the livestock barns under major construction. While the renovation of the barns has been happening for several years- the barns that have been torn down in recent months to be replaced have caused the traffic flow into the fairgrounds to be disrupted- as well as the traffic flow and pen assignments to be significantly hampered compared to recent years.
The 2012 goat Showmanship contest was held on Saturday, with the Champion and Reserve Champion from the Senior Division winning the overall contest. The Overall Champion in Goat Showmanship was Kelsey Humphries from the Wellston FFA (she won the 18 year old division) while the Reserve Champion was Karissa Pfeiffer from the Mulhall FFA, winner of the 16 year old division.

Supreme Champion Doe Kid for the 2012 Oklahoma Youth Expo was shown by Johnna Stottlemyre of the Luther 4-H (pictured here) while the Reserve Supreme Champion Doe Kid was exhibited by Karissa Pfeiffer from Mulhall-Orlando FFA.
