Marlow FFA and 4-H members smile proudly after a record-year for the annual Marlow Winter Classic hosted for numerous chapters throughout Oklahoma.

Marlow Ag Booster President, Kenny Baker, said it was one of the biggest and best shows in years. A total of 1,010 entries were recorded with 528 hogs on Friday, and 482 on Saturday. More than 700 pens were set up by the fairgrounds staff prior to the event.

Youth and their families came from Central High, Rush Springs, Comanche, Velma-Alma, Cyril, Calumet, Dibble, Ninnekah, Lawton, Wilson, Yukon, Craig, Lindsay, Minco, El Reno, and Beckham County 4-H, said Madison Baker, who served as announcer for the show. Gift cards were donated by Frontier Feeds, and winner buckets were donated by Orscheln’s Farm & Home Supply store.

“We had so much support from our members and community,” said Kenny Baker. The annual fundraiser helps with scholarships for FFA youth so they can attend camps and other events. Photo Submitted by Kenny Baker
