Dayton FFA Auction a Success

Reserve Champion Steer

Last Saturday’s Dayton FFA Livestock Auction is hailed, by organizers, as a success was a success. The auction was so very different from years past. It was all held in the grandstand of the Anson Rigby Arena. We learned that buyers spent $282,219 before add-ons. Buyers could make their bids in person, or online, or by telephone. No one knew what to expect. The Grand Champion Market Steer was purchased by Thriftee Food Center for $11,500. The Reserve Champion Market Steer went to Lopez Roofing and Construction for $6,500. The were 7 categories of the sale. The Grand and Reserve Champions brought in $61,899 before add ons. When Auctioneer Brady Hanson sold the last of 93 lots the total spent was $282,219, and that number is before ad-ons. Now get this. Last year the total Auction amount paid with ad ons was $223,755. That is over $53,000 more than last year's Dayton FFA Livestock Auction. When add ons are factored in, the $282,219 will only get bigger. For the second year in a row, Lopez Roofing and Construction was the volume buyer.  Here is where we say WOW! There were so many things that could have gone wrong but with a great job done by the kids, the volunteers, and the wonderful bidders even a worldwide pandemic could not hold them down
