Grand Champion Barrow at OYE Sells for $20,000 for Young Lady in Her Second Time AroundMon, 22 Mar 2010 21:32:04 CDT
It was the second time around for Brianna Robinson to drive a Grand Champion Barrow into the Sale Ring at the Oklahoma Youth Expo. Her first championship was four years ago in 2006. This year, she claimed top prize with the best barrow out of 2,388 shown on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Oklahoma Youth Expo.
Robinson had the Champion Hampshire, and her barrow weighed a hefty 265 pounds. For her efforts in feeding this champion caliber porcine, Brianna Robinson saw her barrow sell for $20,000 on Monday afternoon. Buyers included the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Blue & Gold Sausage, Bank of Western Oklahoma and American Farmers & Ranchers. The picture here is of a happy Brianna Robinson in the Sale Ring with her barrow which received a treat that looked like marshmallows for standing still for the half dozen plus camera people.
The reserve Grand Champion Barrow had a single buyer- the State Fair of Oklahoma, with the bid coming in that was accepted and declared final by Eddie Sims of $15,000.
The Third Place Medallion barrow at the OYE for 2010 was shown and owned by Cheyenne Gaff of Timberlake 4-H- she got $7,500 from Chesapeake, American Farmers & Ranchers and Oklahoma Pork Council.
