Pawnee FFA Repeats as Livestock Handling Skills Champs at 2015 Tulsa Farm Show

Pawnee FFA Repeats as Livestock Handling Skills Champs at 2015 Tulsa Farm Show

It turned out that 2015 was a repeat for the first and second place teams at the 2015 Tulsa Farm Show Livestock Handling Skills Contest held this past Friday. The high placing team for 2015 was the Pawnee FFA Chapter squad- same as in 2014. And the second place team in both 2015 and 2014 represented the Perkins-Tryon FFA Chapter.

All contestants won scholarships, belt buckles and certificates for being a part of the competition. Teams had to qualify by taking a written test on animal well being and handling back in July of this year that was given at the Big 3 Judging Contests held by Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.

Sponsor of the contest was the American Farmers & Ranchers. After the contest- we talked with Terry Detrick, President of AFR, about their sponsorship of this contest and many other young events- and he offers an explanation of why contests like this one is a high priority for his organization.

Pictures of several of the teams in action and all ten teams receiving recognition after the contest can be seen on our FLICKR album dedicated to the contest- click here to jump there.

The first place 2015 team from Pawnee (shown here) included team members Tucker Wilson, Maddison Vance and Walter Ware.

Second place Perkins-Tryon FFA team members included Jacob Gould, Kaylee Brunker and Hailea Hotten. Brunker was a part of last year's Perkins- Tryon team that also finished in second place.

The third place team represented the Morrison FFA Chapter- and included team members Collin Ring, Trevor Vernon and Clint Stuart.

The other teams in order of overall finished included:

4. Hydro- Eakely FFA #2

5. Hydro- Eakely FFA #1

6. Locust Grove FFA

7. (tie) Latta FFA and Madill FFA

9. Glencoe FFA

10. Newkirk FFA

We have a second FLICKR album that has the pictures from the contest and many more pictures taken of all the other action going on at the Tulsa Farm Show for 2015- click here for that album.
