63rd Annual FFA Show returns with strong sales

The Grand Champion Steer was exhibited by Kevin Hart, and purchased by the Superintendent’s Group for $12,000.

ALDINE – The FFA held their 63rd Annual Sale of Champions last Friday afternoon, in the M.O. Cambell Center.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the format of the show and sale was modified from previous years. The sale was held in the afternoon, with a video feed for those who could not attend in person.

However, the stands were filled with eager buyers, and the animal stalls were neatly organized in a somewhat smaller area than before. Exhibitors and school staff wore face masks, and kept a distance between each other.

There were a total of 54 lots auctioned off by auctioneer Hines, and he kept the sale moving briskly, but also bringing strong bids. A preliminary total for the sale was over $165,000, comparing favorably with previous years.

The sale also included Rodeo art earlier in the day. A complete report and more photos will appear in a future issue of this newspaper.
