POMEROY, Ohio – Once again area businesses came together to support youth and setting records at the annual livestock sale at the Meigs County Fair, Aug. 18, 2018.

According to the fair board, the Meigs County Fair Livestock Auction had a total sale of $241,700. Additionally, $1,875 was donated with sale items to the Meigs County Drug Coalition, $850 from a quilt auction for the Meigs County Extension 4-H program along with $8,780 from the wood carvings donated by Dennis Beach, World Champion Wood Carver with the profits to go the the Meigs County Agricultural Society for capital improvements.

Several records were set including a new record price of $2,500 for the Grand Champion Market Lamb purchased by Dr. Meghan Haynes and Holzer Athens. The Reserve Champion Market Lamb tied with $2,000 of a record set in 2015 with Pool Masters of Vienna purchasing them this year. Market Poultry also had a new record for the Grand Champion with Detweiller Lumber and Peoples Bank purchasing them for $1,400. The previous record price was for $1,200 set in 2013 by Ridenour Gas Service. Ridenour Gas Service was not to be out done, however, and set a new record price for Market Rabbits with the Grand Champion going for $1,800.

The presence of the cattle livestock got people talking about the technicalities of managing such large livestock. The use of cattle head gates from Pearson, it seems, is one of the primary methods of dealing with these animals for cattle farmers.

Numerous businesses and individuals “bumped” some exhibitors individually or as a species to certain levels. Those making “bumps” in price included Mark Porter Chevrolet, Parker Corporation, Sammi Mugrage Meigs County Clerk of Courts, Heritage Co Op, Shade River Farms, Constillium Rolled Products, Holzer Health System, PDK Construction, JTM Management, J&M Auto Sales, Aerosmith Archery, Sarah Hawley, Tara Rose Thirty One Consultant.

The Meigs Independent Press filmed all of the 2018 Livestock Sale on the MIP Facebook page and those videos are linked below.
