Grand Champion Goat at OYE Sells for $21,000- Second Best Auction Price Behind Only the SteerMon, 22 Mar 2010 22:07:31 CDT
The Grand Champion Market Goat was actually selected a week earlier than the other animals, as the Grand Champion selection was made on Monday the 15th. And the final three young people selling their goats first were the same three young people who sold their goats first in 2009. The top pair of young people were reversed from 2009 when the judge finished up last Monday as Chance Greenroyd of Noble FFA was declared the Grand Champion winner and owner of the best market goat in the show for 2010- besting more than 1,500 other goats. As the fourth animal sold at this year's Oklahoma Youth Expo, the final bid that came in to Auctioneer Eddie Sims was actually higher than the previous two Grand Champions, the barrow and the lamb. Greenroyd picked up a final bid of $21,000 for his goat.
Winning bidders included quite a list that worked together- including Farm Credit of Central Oklahoma, Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma, Precision Therapy, Pin Point Monograms, Showrite Feeds, K&S Tires, Oklahoma Meat Goat Association and Loving Care Home Health.
The Reserve Grand Champion Market Goat here in 2010 was owned by the 2009 Grand Champion Goat winner, Mercedes Hardin of the Hennessey FFA. Mercedes saw her goat bring $11,000 as it sold to a trio of buyers: the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Youth Expo.
Winning the Bronze Medallion for the second year in the row was Lora Riley of Alva 4-H. The third best goat in the 2010 show ended up selling for a price of $8,000 to a multiple bigger group. That group included Farm Credit of Enid, Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma, Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma, Oklahoma House Representatives' members, Oklahoma Meat Goat Association and Showrite Feeds.
