Oklahoma Farm Bureau sponsored the state’s agricultural youth by purchasing more than $40,000 in premiums at the 2021 Oklahoma Youth Expo Sale of Champions on Friday, March 19 at the Jim Norick Arena at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds.
Before the sale started, OKFB was honored as the volume buyer for purchasing the most premiums at the 2019 sale due to last year’s cancelation.
OKFB purchased premiums on 45 animals alongside fellow agricultural and rural organizations, as well as individuals.
Additionally, OKFB purchased the chalice for the grand champion steer, shown by Reign Scasta of Marshall County 4-H.
The Oklahoma Youth Expo awarded the top market animal exhibitors more than $1.25 million in the premium sale. More than $300,000 in academic scholarships were awarded to seniors for their excellence both in the classroom and the showring.
