Kroger top bidder for fair beef champion

By The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS - Last year's Sale of Champions at the Ohio State Fair saw five bid records broken, but none of the previous champions will be back this year.

        This year's grand champion market beef will be sold by Stephanie Riley from Muskingum County.

        Kroger bought the grand champion steer for the third straight year, once again outbidding rival Meijer. Kroger also bought the champion market lamb and meat chicken.

        The sale is a chance for youngsters to earn money from livestock they have raised.
