Oklahoma Farm Bureau & Affiliated Companies was the major buyer at the 2006 Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Premium Auction Oct. 6.
The state’s largest farm organization purchased the reserve grand champion lamb and 21 other prize-winning animals that made the annual premium auction.
Farm Bureau was recognized prior to the auction with the 2005 Frank Sanders Memorial Award for last year’s premium auction, marking the sixth consecutive year for Farm Bureau to be recognized for purchasing the largest number of animals in the sale.
Oklahoma Farm Bureau also sponsored Tulsa State Fair FFA Livestock Judging Contest Oct. 6, and awarded a $750 cash prize to the winning Haworth FFA team in the senior division. The team will be Oklahoma’s representative at the National Western Show in Denver in January, where the best judging teams from across the nation compete for national championship.
Members of the Haworth FFA team included Mark McPeak, Hollie Coleman, Tara Maye
and Meghan Frazier. The monetary award is presented to help the winning team defray
its expenses at the National Western Show.
