Sale of Champions Day Edition of our OYE Recap for Friday, March 22th

Fri, 22 Mar 2019 11:37:40 CDT

Sale of Champions Day Edition of our OYE Recap for Friday, March 22th It's Sale of Champions Day at the 2019 Oklahoma Youth Expo- and I am very excited to see what 4 PM will bring for the 212 4-H and FFA members who have "made the sale." We have the PDF of who is in and when they will drive or lead their animal into the sale ring. Click or tap here to check it out.

When you get all the way up to three people taking pictures during the week- I guess you can say we have had a Photo Team for the 2019 OYE- and I want to give a shout out to Stanley Gaffrey and Carson Horn for helping me snap picture after picture- when everything gets placed into our albums up on Flickr- we will have more than 2,000 photos for you to check out, download and utlize for your personal use. ALL FREE- and a part of what we do in serving you with complete coverage from the OYE- details on our sponsor is down lower- but ITC has sponsored our coverage of both the OYE and National FFA for the last several years- and we REALLY do appreciate them a whole lot. By the way- Stanley's first OYE was this year- he is a Senior at OSU studying Ag Communications and is from Delaware- and had an absoulte blast taking pics over the last week- and he did a great job capturing the excitement and emotion of this world class event.

If you want to take a look at our pics- we have the massive "everything" album for the 2019 OYE- and then we will end up with six smaller sub albums highlighting various aspects of the last ten days or so.

The Chairman of the OYE Board, Bob Funk, announced in a video that the Oklahoma Youth Expo will be moving their offices from midtown Oklahoma City out to Reno on the south side of the State Fair Park property- a new building will house the OYE staff makiung it super convenient come each March.

The Kiss the Pig Competition was concluded on Thursday, with Rose Bonjour raising the most money for TEAM RUSTY- and she kissed a Berk Barrow with style! Over $11,000 was raised for Team Rusty during the Hog Shows- and it was announced by the Barrow Show judges, Nick and Neal Mauck, tha they would donate their honorariums to TEAM RUSTY- that was met with a large roar of approval.
