Grand Champion Market Steer Commands $37,500 at the 2014 Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Sale

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 06:08:43 CDT

Grand Champion Market Steer Commands $37,500 at the 2014 Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Sale The grand finale of the Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Show is the Auction of the top animals of five different species. Leading off the sale, as is the tradition, was the Grand Champion Market Steer- shown by Lauren Bilderback of the El Reno FFA Chapter. You can listen to the sale of her steer in our audio overview of the sale by clicking on the LISTEN BAR at the bottom of this story.


The Steer fetched $37,500 for Lauren- and that cost was shared by L.C. Neel, McDonalds, American Farmers and Ranchers and Farm Credit of East Central Oklahoma. Neel is a long time supporter of the sale at the Tulsa State Fair- and has bought one or more of the top animals for decades. The $37,500 compares to the $35,000 paid for the top steer in both 2013 and 2012.


The Reserve Grand Champion Steer was shown by the owner of the 2013 Grand Steer- Baylor Bonham of Newcastle FFA. Bonham saw his steer bring $20,000 on Thursday afternoon, with L.C. Neel joining with Murphy Brothers(the Carnival operator of the Fair) to buy the number two steer.


We have pictures of both Wednesday night and the McDonalds Night of Champions when the Grand Champion drive was held for four of the five species- as well as lots of photos from Thursday afternoon and the 2014 Tulsa State Fair Junior Livstock Show and Sale.
