Supreme Purebred Champ Brings $32,500 for Ty Goss of Leedey FFA at the 2017 OYE Night of Stars Gilt SaleWed, 15 Mar 2017 20:20:22 CDT
The 2017 Oklahoma Youth Expo Night of Stars saw the Champion Berkshire that was then named the Supreme Champion Purebred of the OYE this past Friday enter the sale ring on Wednesday night as the third gilt to sell- and she turned out to be the star of the show as Berkshire Champion garnered a final bid of $32,500. Ty Goss of Leedey FFA was the owner of what may be the highest priced hog of the 2017 show.
Close behind when it came to winning bids was the third place Commercial Gilt that had a strong Berkshire influence- Sophie Varner of Bristow FFA ended up with a $27,500 payday for her gilt sired by Monopoly 27-3.
The third highest gilt sold on Wednesday evening was the 6th place Commercial Gilt- showing off Hamp markings and earning $17,000 for her owner, Baylea Green of Wellston FFA.
The Supreme Champion Commercial Gilt shown by Garrison Straka of El Reno 4-H sold for $7,000, while the Reserve Supreme Champion Comercial Gilt sold by Kolton Baber of Big Pasture FFA was auctioned at $12,000.
One other gilt brought five figures- the fifth Commercial Gilt with Berkshire influence- shown and sold by Kenzie Sellers of the Marlow FFA for $12,500.
