Record-setting Crosby Livestock Show nets over $375,000; $25,000 bid for GC steer

Shelby Kouba exhibits “Tucker.” As the auctioneer reaches out for $22,000, a gasp comes from the audience. This is Shelby’s second year to show the Grand Champion steer in Crosby.

CROSBY — Although official tallies are not completed yet and there is still to be much billed and collected, it seems the livestock sale last Wednesday including silent auction, live auction, resale and other factors, brought in about $375,000 total. About 60 local youth exhibited livestock or Ag. mechanics or horticulture exhibits, and sales were at a record high, including the grand champion steer for $25,000 to Bayshore Dodge. Unofficial tallies indicate that the Livestock Live Auction brought about $310,000, but there was much on-going. Next week the Star-Courier intends to present the Livestock Auction in full photo of the grand and reserves.
