Oklahoma 4-Her Shows Reserve Grand Champion Steer at NAILE

Oklahoma 4-Her Shows Reserve Grand Champion Steer at NAILE

Six young people from six states sold six Champion and Reserve Champion animals for a total of $96,000. Home base for the six youngsters who were featured in the sale included New Mexico, Indiana, Arkansas, Minnesota, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

Representing Oklahoma in the NAILE Sale of Champions was Baylor Bonham of the Newcastle 4-H. Baylor had the reserve Champion Crossbred and the Reserve Grand Champion Steer of the entire show- with his animal bringing $21,000.

Earlier this fall, Baylor showed the Grand Champion Market Steer at the 2013 Tulsa State Fair. Click here for our story on Baylor's steer in Tulsa back early last month. Baylor saw his top steer in Tulsa bring $35,000. (Baylor is shown here in Tulsa with his Grand Champion Steer from that show)

The big event is the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) Sale of Champions, which features the top two animals from the Jr. Steer Show, the Jr. Wether Show, and the Jr. Swine Show. The sale is held to honor young people for the work they have done throughout the year to raise their champion entries. To qualify in junior shows, and subsequently in the Sale of Champions, young people must be 21-years-of-age, or younger.

Proceeds from the Sale of Champions are used for a variety of purposes by the young people, ranging from reinvestment in their livestock operations, payment of college expenses, farm land purchases, equipment purchases and much more. The honor of winning in Junior Show rings is, in itself a lifetime achievement, and the Sale of Champions adds luster and wealth to the honor since youngsters take home big money.

Each year 10% of the sale money is withheld to promote the sale and the philanthropy of all buyers and 10% is withheld as a contribution to "Blessings in a Backpack", which provides food to needy school children in Louisville. Young sellers receive the balance of sale proceeds.
