Winter Bonanza is an annual cattle jackpot hosted by Pi Chapter of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity. The first show was held on December 15, 2001 at the Payne Country Fairgrounds in Stillwater, OK- and has been held there ever since! The show is a two day Steer & Heifer show with two exhibition rings to compete in each day. The breed classes we typically have are:
Commercial, Jr. Mini Hereford, Mini Hereford, Angus, Red Angus, Brahman, Brangus, Charolais, Chianina, Horned Hereford, Polled Hereford, Limousin, Limiflex, Maine-Angus, Maine-Anjou, Maintainer, Shorthorn, Shorthorn Plus, and Simmental. (Three entires are required for a Breed)
The payout for Grand Champion in both rings A and B is $1500.
We love hosting this jackpot each year, and enjoy seeing the many returning exhibitors!

The main goal of the Winter Bonanza show is to act as a philanthropy for a local family or individual who is involved in agriculture, and going through a tough time. Whether it be a medical condition, natural disaster, or other struggle, we aim to give back to those around us. All exhibitors are given the opportunity to donate 10% of their winnings to the philanthropy.
This year we are supporting Christi Schovanec and family of Garber, Oklahoma to assist with their expenses related to Christi’s fight against Leukemia. We take great pride in sharing our passion for agriculture, while helping out those in our communities.
