The Illinois State Fair held the Governor’s Sale of Champions last night and the Governor and First Lady had a little fun. JB and MK split their bidding when it came time to auction off the Grand Champion Steer shown by Cole Caldwell of Elmwood. As the bidding came down to the wire – MK swooped in for a big move.
And $75,000 would take it. JB said that it was a shock to him that she battled against him.
Caldwell is 13 and headed to 8th Grand in Elmwood. He says the winnings tonight will help him save for college.
