30% percent of each animal's auction price goes to the Missouri State Fair Youth in Agriculture fund, which awards scholarships to young people studying agriculture at a Missouri institution of higher learning. The remainder of the auction proceeds goes to the 4-H or FFA member who exhibited the animal. Proceeds are usually somewhat higher than current market prices.

Among the sales on Saturday, BTC Bank of Bethany, Gallatin, Albany, Pattonsburg, Chillicothe, Carrollton, and Lamoni, Iowa; along with the Jerry Litton Memorial Foundation of Chillicothe; and Youth in Agriculture and Hometown Supporters purchased the Grand Champion Lamb for a record sale price of $19,100. It was exhibited by Bryce Schmidt of Maryville. The 135 lb. crossbred lamb was donated to the Missouri FFA Leadership Fund.

The University of Missouri-Columbia Independent Aggies and Edward Jones and Associates purchased the Grand Champion Steer for $23,000. Numerous Edward Jones Associates participated, including Roger Bennett of Trenton, Jim Bonderer and Mark Harrison of Chillicothe, Lon Luckert of Brookfield, and Cole Merrill of Cameron. Additional funds for the Grand Champion Steer were contributed by Youth in Agriculture and Hometown Supporters. The Grand Champion Steer was exhibited by
Stetson Wiss of Lamar. The steer weighed 1325 lbs.

Other prices paid at the Sale of Champions at the Missouri State Fair Saturday included a record $34,500 for the Reserve Grand Champion Steer, $20,500 for the Grand Champion Barrow, $16,000 for the Reserve Grand Champion Barrow, $12,500 for the Reserve Champion Market Lamb.

The Grand Champion Meat Goat was sold for $7,000, the Reserve Champion Boer Goat
$5,000, the Grand Champion Pen of Meat Rabbits $4,000, the Reserve Champion Pen of
Meat Rabbits $4,500, the Grand Champion Pen of Chickens $2,400, and the

We mentioned earlier, a portion of the Sale of Champions goes to benefit Youth in Agriculture. Since 1992, the Missouri State Fair Youth in Agriculture Committee has awarded scholarships totaling nearly $401,000. Application forms for the scholarships will be available on the Missouri State Fair website in November. Applications will be due by February 1st of next year.
