Brandi Maddox of Hennessey FFA Shows Top Meat Goat at Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Show

For the first time in 60 years, the Tulsa State Fair selected all four of their Grand Champions for their Junior Livestock Show under one roof- at the same time. The first ever Night of Champions saw four Oklahoma youth rise to the top as their animals were chosen the Grand Champion in their species. We talked about this concept of a Night of Champions with Mark Andrus, President and CEO of Expo Square and the Tulsa State Fair after he had finished his duties of congratulating the Grand and Reserve Grand winners- click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear our brief conversation.

In the Meat Goat division- the Grand Champion (pictured here) was shown by Brandi Maddox of the Hennessey FFA. Brandi won Divison 6(the heaviest weight class) in the Meat Goat Division. The Reserve Grand Champion also came from Hennessey FFA, as Mercedes Hardin of that chapter had the second place animal in that same class was the second best Meat Goat in the show.

Division Champions in the Meat Goat Event included:

Division 1- Chris Leven, Newkirk FFA

Division 2- Darvy Whitley, Dewey County 4-H

Division 3- Kelsey Humphrey Wellston FFA

Division 4- Blake Kennedy, Tecumseh FFA

Division 5- Stephanie Stewart, Luther FFA

Division 6- Brandi Maddox, Hennessey FFA

Reserves in each of these divisions include:

Division 4- Meagan Rhodes, Fairview FFA
