Unprecedented hometown support for this year’s champion exhibitors helped set six records at Saturday’s Missouri State Fair Sale of Champions. Regional Radio’s Kyle Hill has the details from Sedalia.
The record pace occurred in spite of two fewer lots in this year’s sale, as a result of the cancellation of this year’s rabbit shows.
