Rocky Zeller of Chattanooga FFA Exhibits Grand Champion Market Barrow at 2014 OYEFri, 21 Mar 2014 05:57:20 CDT
Of the thousands of market animals that were exhibited by their young 4-H and FFA owners this week at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, it all came down to the final handful of top animals that were in the hunt for the Grand Championship for their species. For the Market Barrows- the best of best was shown by Rocky Zeller of the Chattanooga FFA. Zeller won with his Champion Crossbred Barrow. Winning the Grand Championship means his barrow was the best of more than 2,400 shown at the 2014 OYE.
The Reserve Grand Champion Market Barrow was shown by Hailey Kastl of the Perkins 4-H club- her Reserve Grand was named the Champion Hampshire barrow earlier in the week.
Zeller and Kastle will join about 200 other 4-H and FFA members who will be able to say "I made the sale" as they will help headline the Sale of Champions on Friday afternoon at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, beginning at 4 PM.
