Stacy Pearce
Grassroots Organization Providing Substantial Premiums

The COBA is a grassroots organization built and ran by Oklahoma show pig breeders.

The purpose of the Certified Oklahoma Bred Association is to provide incentive and recognition to Oklahoma junior swine exhibitors, while promoting Oklahoma raised show pigs. Our goal is to enhance the show pig experience for Oklahoma youth while adding value to Oklahoma breeders' pig crops.

We plan to do this by adding substantial premiums to the exhibitor showing the highest placing "Certified" Oklahoma bred hog in every class shown at OYE. We will pay premiums on barrow and gilt classes at OYE.

For the exhibitor to receive their money, the pig must come from a registered breeder/member of the COBA! The exhibitor and breeder of all COBA class champions will receive a hat, as well. Breeder awards will also be given out to recognize the top breeders in every breed and overall.

We cannot do this without your involvement or membership, though. All applications and litter sheets must be postmarked by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13th. Please let us know if you have any questions or need help obtaining membership documents.

Applications Available at Tulsa State Fair

The Wait Is Over . . .

Oklahoma show pig breeders and exhibitors, are you ready for an organization to serve you and provide added opportunity and incentive to breed and exhibit show pigs here in Oklahoma? Big things are happening in the COBA! We had our first board meeting today, and we are about ready to roll this program out. 

We are looking to provide at least $30,000 in premiums to Oklahoma Bred class winning BARROWS and GILTS at OYE 2018, with the possibility of money added to the top end, as well. An Oklahoma Bred class winner is the highest placing pig in that class that is bred in Oklahoma. All pigs that are FARROWED IN OKLAHOMA from July-September that come from a registered COBA breeder will be eligible for the added premiums at OYE 2018.

We look to publish our 2017-2018 COBA rules, membership applications, and fee structure later in the week. For more information, please feel free to contact one of our board members.
