Oklahoma Dexter Cattle Association Youth Heifer Program
The purpose of this program is to aid youth in getting started in the Dexter Cattle business, by awarding heifer calves to program participants on the basis of merit, future goals and the ability to care for the animal.  Any Oklahoma youth, ages 9-15 as of January 1st of the current year, who is a 4-H or FFA member may apply.  Previous winners of the ODCA youth heifer are ineligible.  All applications will be reviewed by an independent selection committee.  
Each program participant will own their heifer jointly with the ODCA until completion of the program, at which time the participant will receive full ownership of the heifer and her offspring.
Each program participant will be responsible for raising the calf, arranging for her to be bred (AI or naturally) with help from their ODCA mentor, and provide an annual report about their heifer at the fall ODCA meeting in October for two years.

Ruston may have been the only one in his class, the only Dexter in the show but was a huge moment for all members and supporters of the Dexter breed.

We got our own class and got recognized. We didn't get put in AOB class. Made it into the grand drive.

Had to share because they made room for us. Had to share because I know how important this is to the Dexter association and its members.

Thanks to everyone that made it happen. Thank you Alfalfa county fair board members. Thank you to his ag teacher, thanks to the other kids and families that help him and teach him. Thanks to each of you that have helped him learn the ropes along the way, helped him at every show. And thanks to the Dexter association members that are forwarding the program.

Taylor Amsley and New Day Amy


We are so excited to announce that another heifer 
has been awarded to a deserving Oklahoma youth by the
Dexter Heifer Program. Taylor Looman is from Hardesty and is really
excited about her new Heifer New Day Amy!
She has been in love with the Dexter breed since she was
an 8th grader and her Ag Teacher introduced the breed to her class.
She was given the chance to interact with some cattle and breeder at the
Oklahoma Youth Expo and decided she HAD to have one.
She hopes to introduce the Dexter breed to the citizens of Texas
county at the 2017 Texas County Youth Livestock
show this upcoming February.  She is excited to hopefully get more
students excited and interested in the Dexter breed.
She has received a pretty heifer, New Day Amy ADCA# 039098.
This heifer was purchased at a reduced price from P.J. Breedlove from the
proceeds of our sales of bull calves produced by program heifers.  We thank
P.J. and Joe for their generous offer to help us out.

Earlier this month a Dexter heifer was given to Zoey Shepard by the Oklahoma Dexter Cattle Association.

Thanks to the generosity of a new breeder here in Oklahoma, Mr Dewey Combs.  He just has started his

herd and we can understand what a generous thing he has done.

A very special person that is a great addition to our membership.

Britni Stewart on the left and Danielle Hawkins on the right  at the
 Lincoln  County Spring Show on Mar 6, 2014 at Chandler, Ok.  Danielle is not one
 of our youth recipients  but she has shown for several years now with her own livestock
 and has been an inspiration to all of our youth. 
A great big THANK YOU to you and your family for leading the way, we applaud you.


The newest to receive a heifer from our heifer program
is Britni Stewart. They live south west of chandler.
They picked up the heifer, Pansy, on Sept 29, 2013 at
Euchee Creek Farm
This heifer was purchased from Euchee Creek Farm for
Britni with the proceeds of the sale of the first calf born
 into our Youth Heifer Program for $400.00.
The heifer, Euchee Creek's Red Pansy,  and Britni
seemed to be a great match. I don't
know who was more thrilled Britni or myself. 
So happy to see a deserving young lady
receive a heifer that I raised.  I wish Birini and
Pansy some wonderful times together.
So enjoyed meeting her family and visiting with
 them.  I believe their mentor is Deb
Hawkins so I am sure they are in good hands
and we will all look forward to seeing
them at the shows in the spring.

 Molly Allen and Violet





Molly Allen's heifer Violet had her calf today. Healthy bull calf.  Oh well,

we were all hoping for a heifer this time.  Anyone want to trade a nice bull for a nice heifer?
