commented, “The win at Tulsa is great for the college and the division of
agriculture. At Connors we strive to put our students around the best animals
possible and present examples of the best management practices presently
available. We have a great farm staff who have the knowledge and drive to push our students into being the cattle industry
leaders of tomorrow. This finish will increase ‘Hef’s’ chances at being National Yearling Show Bull of the Year.”
