2019 OYE Nominations & Payouts

OYE NOMINATIONS ARE DUE DECEMBER 13, 2018.

THE COBA WILL BE PAYING AN ADDITIONAL $300 TO THE HIGHEST PLACING COBA PIG IN EVERY CLASS (BARROWS AND GILTS) AT OYE 2019.

TO RECEIVE ADDITIONAL CLASS PREMIUMS AT THE 2019 OKLAHOMA YOUTH EXPO (OYE), ALL COBA-ELIGIBLE PIGS MUST BE INDICATED ON THE ONLINE PORTION OF THE OYE NOMINATIONS AS COBA-CERTIFIED, ALONG WITH YOUR ANIMAL'S UNIQUE COBA EIGHT DIGIT OK BRED NUMBER. 


What is my pig's Unique OK Bred Number? 

Your pig's "OK Bred #" (COBA registration number) is eight digits – a unique combination that is given to every pig in the COBA registry system. Contact your breeder to obtain the number, or you can simply derive your pig's OK Bred Number using the following system:

  • The first three digits of your pig's OK Bred number is your breeder's COBA number. Please refer to the breeder directory to obtain the breeder number. 
  • The next three digits are the pig's litter notch
  • The final two numbers are the pig's individual notch

EXAMPLES:

  • Your pig came from breeder number 011 and its notch is 4-3. Your pig's OK Bred # is: 01100403
  • Your pig came from breeder number 113 and its notch is 33-10. Your pig's OK Bred # is: 11303310.

What is the purpose of the COBA? 

The COBA purpose is to give Oklahoma show pig buyers incentive to buy pigs bred in-state; to support the Oklahoma show pig industry’s profitability and image, and provide a sense of community and involvement for breeders; and to provide support for the growth and development of young agriculturalists.


I'm an EXHIBITOR: how does COBA benefit me? 

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. Substantial COBA class winner premiums provide to exhibitors of the highest placing Oklahoma-bred hogs in class at the Oklahoma Youth Expo. Scholarships provided for high school seniors who have shown a COBA registered pig.


I'm a Breeder: How does COBA benefit me?
