The Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Auction is a time honored tradition that celebrates and rewards agricultural youth across the state of Oklahoma. Thousands of 4-H and Oklahoma youth traveled to Tulsa to compete in the State Championship of Livestock Shows in hopes of winning the prestigious title of Grand Champion.
The most superior animals are showcased in the annual Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Auction, which rewards these victorious individuals for their hard work and accomplishments. Livestock Shows provide youths opportunity to advance their knowledge and careers and teach hard work, dedication, responsibility, loyalty, pride and teamwork.
