Wisconsin State Fair livestock sale raises nearly $10K more this year

by

WEST ALLIS, WI (WTAQ) - The governor’s livestock sale at the Wisconsin State Fair raised about $10,000 more than a year ago.

This week’s event brought in about $221,000. For the sixth year in a row, Brock May of Mineral Point sold one of the top steers – in fact, he sold two of them.

Kenosha Beef International and Birchwood Foods bought May’s grand champion Chianina for over $27,000. And May’s reserve champion cross-bred steer went to Milwaukee’s Potawatomi Bingo Casino for $16,000.

80 percent of the sale’s proceeds go to the animal exhibitors. The rest covers grants, youth scholarships, and expenses.

The State Fair is entering its second and final weekend in West Allis. It runs through Sunday.
