Logan Davis of Newcastle Had the Second Best Steer in 2011- But 2012 Sees Him Grab Grand Championship at OYEMon, 19 Mar 2012 06:58:24 CDT
For the second year in a row, Logan Davis of the Newcastle FFA saw his steer chosen as the Champion Crossbred steer by judge Paul Clapp of Ankeny, Iowa. Clapp was the judge both years- he did not choose the Crossbred in 2011- but Logan Davis shook the hand of Clapp in 2012 as the veteran judge chose his steer this go round as the best of show at the Oklahoma Youth Expo.
The winning steer was being worked at his first- and only- stock show. Davis told us that Walter (the steer) had behaved great earlier in the day- but he was tired and restless at the end of the day as he gave Logan a workout as they stood and watched Clapp carefully evaluate all of the steers standing in the Championship drive.
In 2011- the Crossbred Champ owned by Logan Davis was good enough to be the Reserve Grand Champion- and he says that was a great experience- but better number one is an even better experience- and Logan and Walter will start the Premium Sale of the 2012 OYE at 4 PM on Monday afternoon at State Fair Park in Oklaoma City.
The Reserve Grand Champion Steer at the 2012 OYE was the Champion Maine Anjou, shown by Macy Griswold of the Perkins Tryon FFA.
These two Steers 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.
