A total of 118 exhibitors made the auction sale arena for the 56th annual La Vernia Junior Livestock & Poultry Show that concluded March 2.

During the Junior Sale of Champions, the smiles on the faces of the exhibitors participating were almost as big as their paychecks as just the grand champions earned $22,600. The overall sale ended with an estimated grand total of $287,000, down $14,000 from last year. Organizers said the decline was due to the decrease in the number of steers.

Grand champion exhibitors included: Madison Summy, rabbit; Clayton Matney, lamb; Haley Cone, turkey; Braden Recker, broilers; Zachary Heinsohn, goat; Emily Ramzinski, steer; and Madison Heinsohn, hog. Braden told auctioneer Joey Tomlinson this was his first grand champion win.

Winning the reserve champion banners were: Jordan Bailey, rabbit; Makayla Matney, lamb; Emily Ramzinski, turkey; Meg Kravitz, broilers; Colton Bennett, goat; Kourtney Sells, steer; and Chesney Halsey, hog. Colton defended his reserve champion goat title as he also won reserve last year. Meg kept the reserve champion broilers banner in the family as her sister, Samantha, exhibited the reserve broilers last year.

In the breed championship round, winners included: Kimberlyn Crisp, Hampshire; and Shaley Trammell, OPB.

Exhibiting breed reserve champions were: Colby Skelton, ABC steer; Dok Martin, exotic steer; Savanah Petersen, Duroc; Trace Venske, Hampshire; Megan Johnson, OPB; and Sarah Wildenstein, cross.
