Victoria Chapman Wins Supreme Beef Heifer Championship with Her Champion HerefordTue, 18 Mar 2014 06:30:24 CDT
Several hundred beef heifers paraded before Judges John Rayfield and Chan Phillips on Sunday and Monday at the 2014 Oklahoma Youth Expo. At the end of the day- there was one Supreme Champion as the best female bovine of all of the purebreds shown- and a Commercial Champion Beef Heifer selected- for the commercial division where 190 animals were seen by Dr. Rayfield.
In the Commercial Division, the Champion Commercial Heifer was shown by Gatlin Goodson of Shattuck 4-H, earning a $1,500 scholarship. Picking up a thousand dollar scholarship for her efforts, Baylee Beck of Yukon FFA had the reserve Champion Commercial Heifer.
There were sixteen different breeds that entered the show ring and competed at the 2014 OYE- and judged the best of them all- earning the Supreme Champion Heifer honors was Victoria Chapman of the Dickson FFA. Victoria had the Champion Hereford that competed with the other breeds. She earned a one thousand dollar sholarship for the Supreme Champion win- that on top of the $2000 scholarship she earned for having the Champion Hereford Heifer.
The Reserve Supreme Champion Heifer was shown by Edmond 4-Her Ryan Callahan, receiving a $500 schoalrship as his prize for having the second best purebred beef heifer. His Angus Heifer was the breed Champion- and he received a $2,000 scholarship for showing the best Angus heifer at the 2014 OYE.
During the Beef Heifer show, we talked with Judge John Rayfield- and his comments are featured in today's Beef Buzz. Click here to jump to that story and hear his comments on the show.
Due to some technical difficulies- we don't have the full list of breed champions from the OYE office as of yet- but will update this story when we have them.
