The Oklahoma Youth Expo is excited to launch the Exposition for the Youth of Oklahoma Fall Classic livestock show, set to be held September 18 through 20, 2020 at the Stephens County Fairgrounds in Duncan, Oklahoma.
This youth livestock show is open to all Oklahoma youth livestock exhibitors who were eligible to show at the Oklahoma State Fair. Show rules will be similar to that of the Oklahoma State Fair and will be released soon on okyouthexpo.com. Entries will open August 14 and be due August 28, 2020.
Species eligible to show at the EYO include prospect steers, breeding beef heifers, market barrows, breeding gilts, market wether sheep, breeding ewes, market wether goats and breeding does.
“Amid the cancelation of the Oklahoma State Fair, our team at the Oklahoma Youth Expo believes it is critical to provide an opportunity for our ag youth exhibitors to have a venue to exhibit their livestock,” said president of Onward Endowment, Tyler Norvell. “Therefore we have launched the EYO, the Exposition for the Youth of Oklahoma Fall Classic.
“The hard work and dedication our ag youth put towards their livestock projects needs to be recognized and rewarded,” Norvell said. “We hope to see you in Duncan in September.”
