CROSBY – June 11 was the day that the Crosby Fair & Rodeo hosted the Annual Livestock Auction and this year sals and re-sales topped a new record.

With a total over $24,000 more than last year the Rodeo Board can continue to boast of expansion while bestowing opportunity and cash to exhibitors.

Over $50,000 came in Grand Champion Sales alone this year in the Crosby FFA & 4-H Auction and there were exhibitors out to third place that sold livestock.

This year one of the flag bearing riders inside the arena during the rodeo was also the Grand Champion Steer Exhibitor, Meagan Nash. Meagan and her sister Madison have been thoughout Texas learning all there is to know about livestock.

Gracie Shubert had the Grand Champion Lamb bought by Omnix Healthcare. Teague Schexnayder sold his Grand Champion Swine to Oilwell Tubular Consultants.

On it went into the night as the community rallied about the concept of a Livestock Auction to provide educational opportunities to area youth that will work with the programs.

Repeatedly, the efforts of the parents of these exhibitors in contribution to the community prosperity is most gratifying for those outside the events.
