Breeding Gilt Show at 2013 OYE- Supreme Champs Selected and Sale Details AnnouncedTue, 26 Mar 2013 05:58:12 CDT
As the 2013 Oklahoma Youth Expo winds down- beef heifers and breeding gilts were shown on Monday, March 25. In the case of the breeding gilt show, it was day two, with the Commercial breeding gilts (Crossbreds) being shown. On Sunday- it was the purebred classes that were shown and a supreme champion in that part of the show was named- Ashtyn Stenger of Carnegie FFA showed the Champion Hamp which was selected to be the Supreme Purebred Gilt of the 2013 OYE. Judge Kent Bennington of Indiana stayed with the Hampshire breed for his Reserve Supreme Champion- picking the gilt shown by Cade Moore of the Hobart 4-H club.
Meanwhile, the Monday breeding gilt show focused on Commercial gilts- and the Supreme Commercial Breeding Gilt was shown by Taylor Wolff of the Stroud FFA, while the Reserve is owned and shown by Rachel Beames of Howe 4-H.
