OSU's Dr. Kim Anderson Celebrates His Role with The Junior Wheat Show and Cheers this Years Winners

OSU's Dr. Kim Anderson Celebrates  His Role with The Junior Wheat Show and Cheers this Years Winners The Oklahoma Junior Wheat banquet wrapped up last night at Embassy Suites in Oklahoma City to celebrate the winners and hand out $16,000 in scholarships to top 4-H and FFA members who participated.

Congrats to the overall Champion of the 2020 show- Ryder Klaassen of Hydro Eakly FFA whose Doublestop CL Plus earned top honors and Logan Chance, daughter of Jordan Chance and Chassidy Bedwell, recently placed 1st overall in the 4-H division while showing her Smith’s Gold variety at the 2020 Oklahoma 4-H/FFA Junior Wheat Show. Chance placed 4th in production and milling and 1st in the bake contest earning her the title of 1st place and 4-H champion overall. Chance is a member of the Okeene 4-H club in Blaine County.

Associate Farm Director, KC Sheperd was on-hand at the Wheat banquet and had the chance to talk to Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson. Anderson said he is so proud of the event, "You know you've got the top wheat producers in the state. Not only just the parents, but you've got the future top wheat producers in the state all here tonight in 4H and FFA membership."

Each participant had to plant five acres or more of any variety of hard red or white winter wheat, harvest it, keep records on it, and then the wheat is visually graded and ranked then those top 25 out of 4H, and the top 25 out of FFA go into a milling and baking contest. Anderson said the contestant are diligent on growing their wheat, "They keep records on which wheat produces best, which wheat looks the best, which wheat mills the best. So thats what they select and that is what they plant. They watch it and manage it for the seed, for the weeds, for the protein, for test weight. They look for producing a quality product. If Oklahoma wheat is going to stay in the world market its got to be a quality product, a product the millers want, and thats what these kids are learning to raise."

These young producers are already working on planting next years crop to get ready for the next contest. Congratulations to all the participants!
