Three species added to state fair sale of champions

This year’s Sale of Champions at the Ohio State Fair will have three new additions. Ohio State Fair General Manager Virgil Strickler said a block of Swiss cheese along with the grand champion meat goats and grand champion turkey have been added to the sale.

“The block of Swiss cheese will represent the youth exhibitors that win the six junior dairy breed champions,” Strickler said.

He said they have worked on this for years. These new additions help make the Sale of Champions a true reflection of Ohio Agriculture.

“We looked at what species bring money into our state,” Strickler explained.

The block of cheese will be capped at $3,000, the goat at $5,000 and turkey at $3,000. Anything above that will go to the Youth Reserve Program.

The Sale of Champions takes place August 7th at 2:00pm. It will be streamed live here on
