Waynoka holds annual trophy auction, show

ENID, Okla. — Waynoka 4-H and FFA members held their annual trophy auction Jan. 23 at the school multi-purpose building.

In the sheep show, there were two ewes with Trennepohl receiving grand champion and Kelby Reed the reserve grand champion. In wethers, there were five animals displayed with Kelby Reed winning grand champion market lamb on his Hampshire and reserve grand champion on his cross lamb. Sierra Davidson also showed a Southdown and a Hampshire. The junior sheep showman went to Trennepohl, senior to Reed and adult to Chelsea Head.

Derik Miller, Nathan Pitts, Austin Rankin and Kelby Reed also showed barrows.  Junior showman went to Brooke Ferguson, senior to Kelby Reed and adult to Daresa Poe.

Winners of the showmanship in each species competed for overall showmanship. They included Trennepohl and Ferguson in the junior division and Meriwether, Reed and Smith in the senior division. These five exhibitors had to show all four animals species for the judge. Junior showmanship went to Trennepohl, and the senior showmanship went to Smith. They both received a belt buckle. The winner of all-around showman is based on a point system, and this year's winner was Trennepohl. She received a silver platter.

  • Jeff Bedwell Consider safety of forage beforehand

    Drought conditions of the past three to four years and in particular the past eight months had hay/forage inventories at critically low levels. The most recent period ranked as the third-driest period in recorded history. Not unlike the farmers and ranchers of other times of drought, ag producers now have been very resourceful to not only replace hay supplies that have dwindled but also add much-needed revenue to farm income.

    The emerging battle could have lasting repercussions for the nation’s food supply and for the millions of people worldwide who depend on U.S. agricultural exports.
