Sale of cow benefits search for a cure

By Jennifer Carrico

It was a rainy day in southern Iowa, but at the Creston Livestock Auction the sun was shining. The seats in the auction ring filled up in anticipation of the sale of "Griff's red cow."

The sale of the cow-calf pair raised over $17,000 for the Relay for Life in memory of 3-year-old Griff's grandmother, Carol Glynn.
