OYE Ag Mechanics Sale Raises Over $52,000 For Exhibitors

Top Ag Mechanics projects were sold in an online sale.

The Oklahoma Youth Expo’s inaugural Ag Mechanics sale sold the top 30 projects in an online sale and totalled $52,119 with all proceeds going to the exhibitors. 

All projects were built by 4-H and FFA students and were exhibited at the 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo in March. The top 30 projects were then sold on Big Iron Auctions. The sale brought national and international interest and projects were sold to five states including Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, Kansas and New Mexico.

“It is extremely exciting to see the projects our Oklahoma exhibitors built were able to draw international attention,” said Bray Haven, Vice President of Operations. “With all proceeds to the sale going directly back to the exhibitors, we cannot wait to see what they’ll bring next year to the Ag Mechanics contest.”

The 2020 Ag Mechanics contest had more than 100 entries including trailers, livestock equipment, hunting and recreational products, decorative pieces and custom built smokers.

We look forward to the 2021 Ag Mechanics contest.
