Youthful ranchers score at fair market
BY JEFF M. HARDISON
FANNING SPRINGS - Bidding was hot from morning into the evening on April 2 at the 56th Annual Suwannee River Fair Livestock Show and Sale.
There were almost 460 animals sold by children from Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties. The total gross sales equaled $723,070.
The tradition of buyers paying children more than market value for cattle and swine held fast this year as it has in the past.
The top dollar went for the Reserve Champion Market Hog, which sold at $18 a pound.
