Sale of Champions

Date: Aug 07, 2022
Time: 2:00 PM

This 2022 Sale of Champions Livestock Auction is free and open to all fairgoers, and tickets are not required. The Ohio State Fair Sale of Champions consistently garners some of the highest bids of any state fair in the nation. Last year, the Sale of Champions raised $306,000 for livestock exhibits.

Established in 1968, the Sale was created to encourage more 4-H and FFA members to bring livestock projects to the Ohio State Fair. The champions of the market beef, market barrow, market lamb, meat chickens, market goat, turkey, and Swiss cheese exhibits are auctioned off in this special event.

Since 1995, the Ohio State Fair has placed caps on the amount exhibitors can earn from their exhibits’ sale. Money from sales over the cap amount is distributed among other youth exhibitors through the Youth Reserve Program. The program allocates funds for scholarships, the Outstanding Market Exhibitor Program, FFA, 4-H, and other Fair competition winners. To date, the Youth Reserve Program has awarded $4,103,150 to approximately 44,000 youth exhibitors since its inception.
