COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The grand champion steer at the Ohio State Fair this year has been sold at auction for $80,000.
Eighteen-year-old Garrett Davidson of London, Ohio, raised the 1,339-pound steer and stood by it as an auctioneer solicited bids at the fair's Sale of Champions livestock auction on Sunday.
Steve Rauch, who owns an excavation and demolition company as well as a few farms, was the winning bidder for the steer.
The Columbus Dispatch (
) reports that this year's auction on the last day of the fair generated $343,500 - just under last year's record amount.
In other sales, the grand champion market turkey brought $15,000, and the grand champion market lamb was sold for $46,500.
