Brown County Youth Fair steer auctioned for record $15,000


BROWN COUNTY, Texas - After nearly a week of showing animals, a steer set a record at the Brown County Youth Fair this weekend.

The Grand Champion steer, owned by Ashtyn Adams of Brookesmith, fetched a price of $15,000 at Saturday's auction - a price no one has paid for a steer in the fair's 65-year history.

Besides the money, Adams gets to keep the steer and will take part in other stock shows around Texas.

The money will go towards her college scholarship.
