The Kentucky State Fair’s 4-H and FFA Sale of Champions concluded this evening with $105,000 raised during the live auction. This premier livestock auction marked the ninth consecutive year that the auction raised more than $100,000.

 

The winning steers, hogs, lambs and goats featured in the Sale of Champions are exhibited by 4-H and FFA members during the Kentucky State Fair. The youth exhibitors receive 60 percent of the purchase price, 30 percent is distributed to the respective class winners, and the remaining 10 percent is divided equally among Kentucky 4-H and FFA.

Representing our area in the 2014 Kentucky State Fair Sale of Champions was Blake Quiggins from Hart County FFA. Quiggins earned first place in the Esupremem Grand Champion Market Goat, which sold for $11,000.

Congratulations to Quiggins and Hart County FFA.
