Queen - Jolee Prentice

Jolee Prentice, 14, Daughter of Robert and Tina Prentice. She started showing Hereford cattle in 2019 and instantly fell in love. She is currently serving as your 2023-2024 Oklahoma Hereford Queen. Her goals while serving are to inform the younger members, and to get everyone more involved! She looks forward to a great year ahead!

She is the 6th generation Hereford breeder for Parker Cattle & Land Co. and is the 2023-2024 Oklahoma Hereford Princess. While she is an active 4-H member in Grady County and an FFA member at AmPo High School this year where she is on the Judging Team this Fall. She started showing Herefords at the age of 7 and is now enjoying breeding her own cattle. She has attended McPeak’s Be a Champ Camp several years and has earned a show place in Showmanship each year. Her other showing skills are with pigs, sheep, and chickens. Teagen is active in her Youth Group at Crossroad to Life Baptist Church in Blanchard and works as a cashier/clerk for her Papa at JK Parker Auction Services. She maintains high grades in school and is continually implementing and modeling the technical and leadership skills learned through both Church and Livestock Showing.

Sweetheart: Kendall Devine

Kendall Devine, 9, is the daughter of Joe and Terah Devine. She is serving as the Oklahoma Hereford Sweetheart and is loving every minute of it. She is an active 4th grader at AmPo Elementary and is in 4-H, church youth group and loves playing softball and reading. She was a Top 10 Showmanship winner at Hereford Jr. Nationals in 2023. Her parents jokingly refer to her as the animal whisperer because she’s never met an animal that didn’t instantly take to her. It’s no different with her Hereford cattle. She thinks they are the most lovable breed and she is looking forward to a fun year of representing the state and the breed.
