Sabina Cattlemen excel at state fair


The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) recently hosted the Best of the Buckeye show at the Ohio State Fair during the junior shows.

The Best of the Buckeye program is coordinated by OCA and held in conjunction with the Ohio Beef Expo and Ohio State Fair. The Best of the Buckeye program had a strong year with more than 260 head of cattle nominated by youth and breeders, adding more registered animals to the show and doubling the number of classes for several breeds.

For local residents, earning Third Overall High % Maine-Anjou Heifer were exhibitor Avery Wood of Sabina and breeder Cameron Alexander of Sabina, with a premium of $100.

The program recognizes top Ohio bred, born and registered calves, along with the breeder and exhibitor, in each breed division at the two shows. Best of the Buckeye provides Ohio seedstock breeders with an enhanced marketing opportunity for Ohio bred, born and registered steers and heifers, creates a source of more moderately priced show steers and heifers by providing a program with awards and prestige, and attracts new participants interested in showing at the Ohio Beef Expo and/or the Ohio State Fair.

This year’s sponsors are Garwood Cattle Co., heifer division; Jones Show Cattle and R.D. Jones Excavating, steer division; and Ohio CAT and Ohio Ag Equipment, scholarship division.
