National Western Stock Show sets record for Jr. Livestock Auction

Advertisement

An all-time record total was achieved at last night's Jr. Livestock Auction at the National Western Stock Show. The previous high total was $592,707 which was set in 2006 for the 100th Anniversary of Stock Show. This year, 98 animals were sold for a record $611,200, nearly a $20,000 increase from the previous record.

The money invested supports the youth that raised the animal as they plan for their future needs for college education. In addition, a portion of the proceeds support the National Western Scholarship Trust, which funds scholarships in agriculture and rural medicine at colleges throughout Colorado and Wyoming. Last year, 74 students received funds to aid their education. The data from this year's Jr. Livestock Auction are below:

--Total bid dollars came to $611,200, smashing the previous total of $592,707.
