First Grand Champion Selected for OYE Premium Sale- Grand Goat Shown by Braden Schovanec of Garber FFATue, 13 Mar 2012 06:25:52 CDT
The second major show day for the Oklahoma Youth Expo was a busy one, with three species all parading before several judges. Two champions were named on Monday, with the first of the market animal champions selected for the Premium Sale next Monday (the 19th). The Grand Champion Market Goat was shown by Braden Schovanec of the Garber FFA Chapter, after being the winner in Division three earlier in the afternoon. The Reserve Grand Champion Market Goat was the Division One Champion- shown by Ashton Heffington of the Dickson 4-H club. We talked with Braden after his goat was picked as the best of the show- and his comments are a part of our audio wrapup that can be found below- click on the LISTEN BAR to hear his comments.
Other Market Goat winners included Division One Reserve Champion- Trent Boles of Asher FFA; Division Two Champion- Lora Riley of Alva FFA; Division Two Reserve was shown by Bree Taylor of Shattuck FFA and Division Three Reserve was shown by Duke Kelln of Major County 4-H.
Over in Barn 6, the Purebred Gilt show was held- and hundreds of young people and their hogs paraded before the judges- when the final selection was made- it was the Duroc Champion that was called the Supreme Champion of the 2012 Show. She was shown by Ashtyn Ayers of the Oktaha 4-H. The Reserve Supreme Champion Gilt was the top Yorkshire of the day- shown by Cole McKinney of the Spiro FFA.
We will update the breed winners in both the purebred gilt show and the beef heifers shown on Monday later on Tuesday morning.
A new sponsor for the 2012 OYE is Devon Energy- giving scholarships to all of the breeding animal winners. That started with the Doe kids on Sunday and continued on Monday with the Purebred Gilt Champs. Representing Devon on Monday was Monte Bruce- and we talked with Monte and you can hear his praise for the young people involved in the Youth Expo by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
