The green carpet was rolled out, and all of the reserve champion and grand champion hogs came to the Stadium Arena for the Grand Champion Drive. Showmanship winners were honored for their hard work and dedication by receiving a belt buckle, ribbon and a bag of show supplies. Reserve Champion hogs from each division drove onto the green carpet to be recognized for their accomplishment. It was then time for the division champions to take center stage. Mike McCoy of Ohio gave reasoning for his final selection as a nervous audience patiently awaited the final results. McCoy selected Christon Watson of Whitesboro, Texas, as the Grand Champion Market Hog out of the Crossbred division. Mikala Grady of Grandview, Texas, was selected out of the same division as Reserve Grand Champion.
Congratulations to Christon Watson and Mikala Grady!
