Ohio State Fair Ends With Records Set At Sale Of Champions

The Ohio State Fair ended its 12-day run Sunday with the annual sale of champion cheese and livestock raised by kids throughout Ohio.

At the end of the Sale of Champions, Fair director Virgil Strickler was pretty pleased.  “I know we did break a few records, so I’m very proud of that. Can’t thank the buyers enough.”

Two records were set – $26,000 for the top Swiss cheese and $16,000 for Grand Champion market turkey. Buyers including grocery store chains, agriculture groups, farm equipment, supplies and services companies paid a total of $269,500 for the livestock.
