Livestock from area 4-H record high mark for sales

Two 4-H champion steers in the dairy breed category and a champion lamb, raised by 4-H members from this region, were sold this past weekend for $11,750 during the annual sale of animals at the State Fair.

Each was a record.

The 2002 grand champion dairy steer, shown by Maranda Dohrn of Wabasha County, sold for $5,500. Jordyn Lubinski of Winona County sold the reserve champion dairy steer for $3,500 and Jeff Hobbs of Olmsted County sold the grand champion market lamb for $2,400.

Each year, 4-H champion animals are sold at the Minnesota State Fair, with money going both to those who raised the animals and the local 4-H program. This year, 71 animals were sold for more than $137,000.

The animals will be on display through Labor Day at the Cattle Barn.
