Record Prices at Illinois State Fair - Sale of Champions

Some record prices at the Illinois State Fair - Sale of Champions last night in Springfield:

With two steers going for around $50,000 each, the 2008 Governor’s Sale of Champions at the Illinois State Fair saw a slew of sales records broken and some obliterated.

The sale of Kendall Stahl’s 1,307-pound Angus steer belongs in the latter category. The Land of Lincoln Grand Champion sold to Crosscreek Farm for $50,000, nearly doubling the previous record of $26,600.
