It’s an annual tradition at the Farm Show, the Sale of Champions.  The animals were crowned champions at some point at the show and are now up on the auction block.  The biggest prize of all is the grand champion steer.  His name is Beau and weighs just over 1300 pounds.  He was raised by Samantha Fabian a college student from Fayette County.  He was sold to the founder and CEO of Hoss’s Steak and Sea House, Bill Campbell, for $11,500.  Samantha says she plans to use the money to help pay for school.
