There is still time for 4-H and FFA members to sign up for the AFR Ag Achievement contest that is happening in conjunction with the 2019 Oklahoma Youth Expo. The AFR Ag Achievement Contest at the Oklahoma Youth Expo is designed to recognize youth who have an interest in livestock, excel in showmanship and have knowledge of the livestock industry including production, management, processing and end product utilization.
