Gov. Stitt Has High Praise For OYE and Oklahoma Ag Youth

Wed, 17 Mar 2021 08:52:59 CDT

Gov. Stitt Has High Praise For OYE and Oklahoma Ag Youth The Oklahoma Youth Expo drew strong praise from Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt this week when he made an appearance at the youth livestock show.

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with Gov. Stitt at the show for a quick interview.

I am a strong supporter of everything agriculture in Oklahoma, Gov. Stitt said.

OYE is the biggest livestock show in the country for young people and the discipline and hard work, the things this teaches young people, I have been more and more impressed, he said.

These are the people who are going to be our future and I want to hire these kinds of people, he said.

This is our way of life in Oklahoma, he said.

The Governor said he was in this same arena in January at the Cattlemenís Congress which drew large crowds from around the country as a replacement livestock show for the Denver Western Stock Show.

It was huge as I used some of my Governorís funds to attract Cattlemenís Congress here from Denver, Stitt said.

We said come to Oklahoma, weíre open, and it was 17 days of hotels and restaurants being filled, Stitt noted.

He added it is one of the reasons Oklahoma has a budget surplus this year while other states struggle.

We believe in protecting folks in Oklahoma and we also believe in freedom and personal responsibility, Stitt said.

The Governor said he believes Cattlemenís Congress will become a permanent part of the Oklahoma City landscape in the future.

I am thinking we are going to get them full time as well as other ag based companies that are seeing the attack on their way of life, he said.

I have talked to several CEOís and said it is time we start living and moving to states that support our way of life, Stitt said.

The message is getting through, he added.
