The Ohio Youth Livestock Expo is 2020’s premier, statewide livestock show for Ohio’s junior livestock exhibitors who are seeking a competitive arena to finish their beef, sheep, swine, and boer goat projects. OYLE respects the administration’s decision regarding the cancellation of the Ohio State Fair and looks forward to the 2021 Ohio State Fair. Led by a group of industry volunteers, the OYLE committee is excited to host a show for junior exhibitors. For the safety of all exhibitors, the show will follow local and state guidelines, along with guidance from county health departments.
