Oklahoma Farm Bureau purchased premiums on 34 animals as the organization supported Oklahoma’s agriculture youth during the 2016 Oklahoma Youth Expo Sale of Champions Friday, March 18 in Oklahoma City.
Before the start of the 2016 sale, OKFB received the 2015 OYE volume buyer award for purchasing the most premiums at the 2015 sale.
The 2016 OYE premium sale raised more than $1.1 million for students across the state who showed their livestock at the annual expo.
OKFB partnered with fellow agricultural and rural organizations and individuals in purchasing the premiums for 34 animals including cattle, hogs, sheep and goats.
OKFB also purchased the chalice for the grand champion steer, shown by Baylor Bonham of Newcastle FFA.
