An Agriculture Tradition: The Sale of Champions

The Governor’s Sale of Champions is a time honored event in which, the Junior Grand Champion and Land of Lincoln Steer, Barrow, Wether, Meat Goat, Poultry Meat Pen and Rabbit Meat Pen are sold. The proceeds from this sale go towards helping 4-H and FFA members attend college, purchase breeding animals and develop future careers. This year the Sale of Champions is going to be bigger and better than ever! The Sale of Champions is moving back to the Coliseum after a long stint of being held in the Livestock Building. It will be held on Agriculture Day, Tuesday, August 18th at 4:00 pm. This is an event that you will not want to miss! New this year, everyone who attends the Sale of Champions will be treated to free Prairie Farms Ice Cream!!!
