Aldine FFA holds annual Show & Sale

Grand Champion Steer was exhibited by Angel Allen, and purchased by First Construction Group for $16,500.

ALDINE – FFA agriculture students held their 61st Annual Livestock Show last Friday night at Campbell Center. Hundreds of people packed the stand, as 60 lots were auctioned off to high bidders.

Proceeds from the sale will go to scholarships, and the cost of raising the animals. An unofficial tally of the bids shows that over $175,000 was raised in the initial bidding, with later add-on increasing this figure. The Northeast News will have a photo report in an upcoming issue.

Bidders, family and fans packed the seats, including Superintendent LaTonya Goffney, Board President Paul Shanklin, Steve Mead, and many others.
