Years of hard work and dedication paid off for Burlington (Okla.) FFA President Jenna Maltbie when her Dorset ewe was selected as the Supreme Ewe of the 2013 Tulsa State Fair. Prior to her selection as Supreme, Maltbie’s ewe was named the Grand Champion Ewe of the Great Plaints Continental Dorset Show and earned Champion Dorset Ewe honors in the Junior Breeding Show. Maltbie also exhibited the ninth overall Hampshire wether lamb of the Tulsa State Fair and qualified for the Junior Livestock Auction, where her lamb was purchased by Oklahoma Farm Bureau and the Oklahoma Youth Expo.
“This was the highlight of my showing career,” said Maltbie. “I have worked for six years to earn the purple banner and this made for a memorable senior year.”
Other Burlington FFA members earned top honors as well. Sadie Collins and Anthony Clark both exhibited wether goats that placed at the top end of their classes and were selected to show again in their division line-up. Tanner Rieger had sixth and eighth place crossbred lambs and Jaden Allen exhibited the fourth overall speckled wether lamb. In the pig barn, Tateyn Rieger placed sixth with his Hampshire barrow and Makalah Henderson earned a blue ribbon with her Californian rabbit. Bayli Hyde concluded the Tulsa State Fair by exhibiting a third place Angus heifer.
Congratulations to these Burlington FFA members on finishing a great season of showing at the Tulsa State Fair.
