The Oklahoma Youth Expo is an event like I’ve never seen! I went a few years ago to watch. Let alone is their grand drive the coolest thing ever, bringing kids in the arena with a limo, but the event itself is huge! OYE is the world’s largest Junior Livestock Show with more than 7,000 4-H and FFA members and more than 13,000 head of cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and ag mechanics projects. It’s amazing to see all of the livestock shown by exhibitors just from Oklahoma. The show is so tough, so getting in the top in a big deal. That’s why I wanted to bring on the Grand Champion Barrow winner of this year’s OYE, Wade Richey, to learn what it takes and his tips to being the best.

We had great success with part one that featured two state winners from West Virginia and North Dakota. For this one I thought we’d keep it within the same state to hear from two different species winners. On today’s episode, I interview Alivia Ritzler who had the Champion Purebred Gilt and Holden LeVan who had the Champion Market Beef at the Ohio State Fair.

I had the pleasure to chat with a couple of buddies of mine from Oklahoma. Fletcher and Dax Inman are two brothers that are following in their parents footsteps in terms of making a name for themselves in the show pig industry. We dug a little into their the Holy Smoke sale and even more importantly, turtle racing. These guys are so fun and I look forward to seeing them soon.


Hi, I'm Joe!

I'm 11 years old, live in Iowa and love showing livestock. My parents have always listened to podcasts in the truck, so I naturally got hooked. However, it wasn't until I was at a Walker Hayes/Parmalee concert in the fall of 2022, when I caught the ambition to start a podcast.

I was in front row with my friend Jace and during the Parmalee concert, the lead singer handed me his electric guitar. After that night, I was contacted by two different radio stations and was able to be interviewed on air. The radio personalities showed me around the station and their equipment. From there, I thought how fun would it be to talk about livestock with my friends on a podcast?

And that's how The Joe Show started.
