Grand Champion Market Barrow at 2014 OYE Sells for $17,500

Grand Champion Market Barrow at 2014 OYE Sells for $17,500

The Sale of Champions at the 2014 Oklahoma Youth Expo had strong support from the state's business community, farm organizations, Indian tribes and even individuals- and that support added up to a record of more than $950,000 in gross receipts for the 210 animals that were a part of the sale. Those dollars were on top of market value of the animals in this premium sale. For the 2014 Grand Champion Barrow- the final bid was $17,500 for owner Rocky Zeller of the Chattanooga FFA. The group of buyers that purchased the top market Barrow sold on Friday afternoon includes Banc First, AFR, Central States Trailers and Oklahoma Farm Bureau. The $17,500 matched the final price of the Grand Champion Barrow of the past two Youth Expos.

The Reserve Grand Champion Barrow for 2014 was shown by Hailey Kastl of Perkins 4-H. Kastl saw her 2014 Reserve Champion Barrow bring $12,750. The Bronze Medallion Barrow was shown Delynna Beard of El Reno FFA- the third highest placing Barrow in the OYE for 2014 brought $6,000.

Here are the details of the 2014 Oklahoma Youth Expo Market Barrow Show- as reported earlier in our Blue Green Gzaette:


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 Kastl 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.
