Grand Champion Steer at Tulsa State Fair Sells for $35,000 for Second Year in a Row

Mon, 07 Oct 2013 05:32:24 CDT

Grand Champion Steer at Tulsa State Fair Sells for $35,000 for Second Year in a Row The top animals that were shown at the 2013 Junior Livestock Show at the Tulsa State Fair were showcased on Friday morning at the Premium Sale of the cream of the crop of the show. As is tradition, the Grand Champion Steer led off the 2013 sale, and the winning bid came from a partnership of players, including one gentleman who due to bad health could not be at the sale on Friday. Longtime banker L C Neel was mentioned as one of the buyers of the Grand Champion Steer that went for $35,000 (same price as a year ago). Other buyers of the top steer were the Tulsa State Fair Ringmasters and Murphy Brothers Exposition- who have the rights to the amusement rides at the fair and have been a regular supporter of the Premium Sale for many years.

Baylor Bonham of Newcastle 4-H is shown here with Jerry and Lorreta Murphy, State Ag Secretary Jim Reese and others in the ring after Bonham's Chianina steer named Tod was purshased for $35,000. Bonham told Farm Director Ron Hays later that he hoped to use some of the money to buy his next steer- will put some in the college fund and always gives some of this winnings to his local church. Baylor is thirteen years old and is a seventh grader. You can hear Baylor and Ron talking in the barns after the sale by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.
