COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Fair has wrapped up with a champion-livestock sale that earned $189,000 for the Youth Reserve Program.
Nineteen-year-old Tyler Clark of Covington, in Miami County, won grand champion with his beef steer, which drew a bid of $50,000 on Sunday. Also in the sale were young exhibitors' champion lambs and hogs.
The Ohio Expo Center says a block of Swiss cheese representing the half-dozen dairy champions went for $25,000, setting a new record for that segment.
The sale came on the final day of the state fair in Columbus, which draws hundreds of thousands of people. Attendance figures for this year's event haven't yet been released.
Next year's fair is scheduled from July 27 to Aug. 7.
