For over a hundred years, the youth of the state of Oklahoma have come to Oklahoma City to compete with the best livestock their generation has to offer. In the 1920's and the 1930's the shows formal title was "The Oklahoma City Fat Stock Show." For nearly 60 years the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce and the dedicated volunteer base of the Sirloin Club of Oklahoma managed the show
In 2001, the Junior Livestock Show was reorganized and renamed the Oklahoma Youth Expo.
The Expo is a program conducted by the Oklahoma Youth Expo (OYE), an Oklahoma-based 501c(3) nonprofit in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture Food and Forestry (ODAFF), Oklahoma State University, the Sirloin Club, the Southwest American Livestock Foundation, the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, and the State Fair of Oklahoma. Its mission is to provide a venue and program to display the finest quality market and breeding livestock in the country that facilitates agricultural production projects, and to fund higher education opportunities for hundreds of youth pursuing studies in agriculture. OYE's success is synonymous with and driven by the success of Oklahoma's rural prosperity, thriving agriculture economy, and education of future agriculture leaders.
Today, the Oklahoma Youth Expo is recognized as the largest youth event in the state of Oklahoma. The livestock show brings over 7,000 exhibitors along with their educators and families from all of Oklahoma's 77 counties. Over the course of the ten-day event, OYE has a $24 million impact on Oklahoma City.
