Eight Ohio State ATI students participated in the Ohio Beef Expo and Murray Grey Show in Columbus March 14-15. The students who helped prepare and show the animals were Tina Cundiff, Cheyenne Jepsen, Ashley Lewis, Jamie Stottlemyer, Nicole Swavel, Austin Douglass, Russ Sprague, and Denver Thomas. They took four Murray Greys: a 3-year-old old bull; two, 2-year-old heifers; and one aged cow. The results:
- ATI Power House 031X was named 2013 National Champion Bull and also received 2013 American Murray Grey Association Supreme Champion.
- ATI Crown Jewel 002Y won 2013 Reserve National Champion Female.
- ATI Carnation 780T won the Aged Cow Division and was Reserve Champion Cow.
- ATI Power House and ATI Crown Jewel were named Best Matched Pair.
