My wife and I watched The Auction of Jr. Champions at the National Western Stock Show last night on 9 News. It reminds me of selling my pigs in 4-H when I was growing up.  The Grand Champion Steer went for $100,000.  However, the most most exciting auction was for the Grand Champion pig. An oinker named Superman was sold for $47,500. Most every kid who sells an animal in the auction plans to use the money to go to college.

  • Grand Champion Steer:  Trevor, raised by Shilo Schaake of Westmoreland, Kansas Sold for $100,000.
  • Grand Champion Pig: Superman, raised by Claire McCormick of Canyon, Texas Sold for $47,500
  • Grand Champion Lamb: Shown by Garrett Goodwin of Ponca City, Oklahoma sold for $20,000
  • Grand Champion Goat:  Raised by Madison Belcher sold for $20,000.
