Grand Champion Steer Sells for $30,000 at 2019 Tulsa State Fair Junior Livestock Show Sale

The Junior Livestock Show at the 2019 Tulsa State Fair came to a close last night- with the sale of the top animals in five species.

Leading off the sale, as is tradition, was the sale of the Grand Champion Steer. And as is tradition, the name LC Neel was a part of the conversation as to who bought the Steer, owned by Kaid Reininger of Newcastle FFA. $30,000 was paid by the LC Neel family and Arvest Bank Foundation. The 94 year old benefactor of the Tulsa sale was not able to attend this year- but had family members representing him.

The Grand Champion Barrow was next, selling for $15,000. High School senior Pace Mittelstaedt of Amber Pocasset FFA showed the best market hog at the 2019 competition- A last minute coalition of buyers came together for the purchase of the top barrow with the Tulsa Farm Show, Oklahoma Farm Bureau, the Tulsa Wyndham Hotel and the Arvest Bank Foundation all participating.

Elk City's Mason Smith lead the third animal into the ring, his Grand Champion Market Lamb. This FFA member saw his animal being purchased for $10,000 by Arvest Bank Foundation and Cherokee Pipe.

The Grand Champion Goat also sold for $10,000- the best goat by the show was owned by Addyson Schneberger of Carnegie 4-H- buyers included JB Water Well and Arvest Bank Foundation

Finally, the Grand Champion Pen of Broilers was shown by Zac Chitwood of Tipton FFA- with the three chickens selling for $2500 and Arvest Bank Foundation buying them.

Prices for the top animals were about the same as in 2018, with the exception of the top pair of Barrows, with both the Grand Champion and the Reserve Grand Champion Barrow, the Reserve Crossbred shown by Madilyn Norvell both going for a couple of thousand dollars more than a year ago. Final numbers from the sale of the 147 animals that made the cut will be available later- in 2018, just over a half million dollars were invested into the future of these 4-H and FFA members who participated.

Reserve Grand Animals and their selling prices include:

Reserve Grand Steer- Tate Bell of Bristow 4-H- $20,000 Purchased by Ringmasters and Cherokee Pipe

Reserve Grand Barrow- Madilyn Norvell of Amber Pocasset 4-H- $12,500 Purchased by Bank of Western Okla, Okla Farm Bureau, Okla Ag Credit, BancFirst, Farm Credit of Western Okla
