Purebred Gilts Lead Off the Show Activities at the 2017 Oklahoma Youth Expo

Purebred Gilts Lead Off the Show Activities at the 2017 Oklahoma Youth Expo


Because of the success of the Night of Stars Gilt Sale that is held annually as a part of the Oklahoma Youth Expo- the OYE management decided to add an extra day to the breeding gilt show here in 2017, which means that the Purebred Gilt show becomes a day and a half- and the commercial breeding gilt show will also be a day and a half.


Day one of the breeding gilt show had the hog show ring active ahead of any of the other livestock species that are a part of the OYE- and a total of six breeds were paraded in front of the sift judge Doug Albright- who pushed the best of each class up the hill to the main ring where lead purebred gilt judge Andy Rash took over. Rash looked at the Berkshires, Chesters, Hampshires, Herefords, Spots and Yorkshires on Thursday- and will consider which animals are the top of each class in the Polands and Durocs on Friday- finishing with the selection of the Purebred Supreme Champion. The very best of each breed will join the top Commercial Gilts next Wednesday evening, March 15, as the top 110 breeding gilts shown at OYE will be sold in the Night of Stars Breeding Gilt Show- one of the premiere sales of its type in the entire U.S.


From Thursday- here are the Champions and the Reserve Champions of each breed shown:


Berkshires:

Champion- Ty Goss, Leedey FFA
Reserve- Sophie Varner, Bristow FFA


Chester:

Champion- Alexis Griswold, Payne County 4-H
Reserve- Katie Logsdon, Tecumseh FFA


Hampshire:

Champion- Gage Milner, Duke FFA
Reserve- Keaten Adams, Leedey FFA


Herefords:

Champion- Daniel Stanley, Hulbert FFA
Reserve- Maxis Herndon, Merritt FFA


Spots:
