The Ohio Youth Livestock Expo

What is the Ohio Youth Livestock Expo?

The Ohio Youth Livestock Expo is 2020’s premier, statewide livestock competition for Ohio’s junior livestock exhibitors who are seeking a competitive arena to finish their beef, sheep, swine, and boer goat projects. Led by a group of industry volunteers, OYLE is a series of individual shows hosted in short windows over different days. Each show session will move in, show, and then move out before the next show session moves in.

For the safety of all exhibitors, the Ohio Youth Livestock Expo is following local and state guidelines and working closely with county health departments. Exhibitors and families will receive specific information related to health and safety via email and text prior to their specific show’s arrival. Spectators should plan to watch the shows online through our partner Walton Webcasting.

Entries are now closed. For the details, schedule, and rules of each show, check out the different species under Show Information in the main menu.

OYLE respects the administration’s decision regarding the cancellation of the Ohio State Fair and looks forward to the 2021 Ohio State Fair.
