Record $30,000 for grand champion steer

Records exploded at Saturday’s 58th Hood County Junior Livestock Show auction, including a sizzling $30,000 top bid for Acton eighth-grader Macey Burch’s grand champion steer. The buyers – the Granbury New Car Dealers Association – drew a standing ovation from the enthusiastic crowd in the Courts Cleveland Show Barn at the Granbury Reunion Grounds. The steer bid clobbered the previous record of $13,000. Five other grand champion records were shattered.
