COLUMBUS — The 51st Ohio State Fair Sale of Champions was held Aug. 5, the final date of the state fair.

This year’s sale broke two records, with the reserve grand champion market barrow selling for $33,000, and the grand champion Swiss cheese brought $28,000.

The sale total was $255,000, of which $167,000 went to the Youth Reserve Program to support educational programs for 4-H and FFA exhibitors.

Each exhibitor receives a cap, or a maximum amount from the sale of his or her animal, and the rest goes to the Youth Reserve Program, which supports carcass contests, scholarships, the outstanding market exhibitor program, outstanding breeding exhibitor program, showmanship and skillathons.
