The Certified Oklahoma Bred Association – a 100% nonprofit organization – was established in 2017 with several goals and purposes in mind.
In it's inaugural year, the COBA was able to award over $27,000 in premiums and 176 exhibitor and breeder hats at OYE 2018!
First and foremost, the COBA gives Oklahoma show pig buyers incentive to buy pigs bred in-state.
The association supports the Oklahoma show pig industry's profitability and image, and provides a sense of community and involvement for breeders.
Lastly, COBA provides support for the growth and development of young agriculturalists through scholarship and added money in state shows.
Become a member, to ensure the growth of the industry within the boundaries of Oklahoma, and support our state's youth.
members benefit. Exhibitors win.
Breeders can expect increased local customer traffic, as well as increased marketing opportunities, winners pictures, and overall prosperity; while being a part of an organization that will provide support and a collective voice for Oklahoma show pig breeders.
Exhibitors can expect to win scholarships and added premiums at major Oklahoma shows just by showing Oklahoma-bred class winners; while traveling fewer miles and spending less money to buy show projects.
