BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The Grand Champion Steer sold for six figures last night at the Governor's Sale of Champions at the Illinois State Fair.

Smashing last year's record of $62,000 for the grand champion steer - this year's animal sold for $100,000.

"Ted" the steer was 12 year old Shaelye Varner's animal. The Morris, Illinois and Hyland Ag 4-H student has been showing cattle since she was five. She plans to put the money aside for college. Her steer was purchased by AT&T, Monsanto and DeKalb Asgrow.

Other records were toppled last night - for the grand champion sheep, barrow and Land of Lincoln steer. In all, more than $260,000 was raised.

10% of the proceeds go to 4-H and FFA programs.
