Cheyenne Gaff of Timberlake FFA Wins Grand Champion Barrow Honors at 2012 OYE

Mon, 19 Mar 2012 06:08:23 CDT

Cheyenne Gaff of Timberlake FFA Wins Grand Champion Barrow Honors at 2012 OYE Cheyenne Gaff of the Timberlake FFA Chapter cried- so did her family- and they were tears of joy as the freshman in High School heard her barrow called out as the best of more than 2,800 barrows shown on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the 2012 Oklahoma Youth Expo. Gaff told us her hog, named Cyclone, placed third overall in Enid at the district show- but bloomed into a full blown storm that took the big prize at the statewide show on Sunday afternoon.

Earlier in the weekend, Gaff had her barrow chosen as the Champion Hampshire- and then judge Steve Rodibaugh told the crowd gathered at the State Fair arena that there was one hog that was the right package- and that hog was the Champion Hamp- Cheyenne's barrow Cyclone.

The Reserve Grand Champion Barrow at the 2012 OYE was the Champion Crossbred, shown by Colt Conner of the Tuttle FFA.

These two barrows will join the other Champions to lead off the 2012 OYE Sale of Champions on Monday afternoon at 4 PM at the State Fair Arena. We talked to all three Grand Champion winners after their selection on Sunday afternoon- and you can hear comments with us by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
