The Premium Sale is one of the most inspiring activities at the stock show and rodeo annually. Throughout the days before, exhibitors from across the state compete against the best of the best to work for a place in the Premium Sale and the Grand Champion Title. Animals exhibited in the Junior Market Steer Show, Junior Market Barrow Show, Junior Market Lamb Show, and Junior Market Goat Show that place in the top end of their division advance to the premium sale.
Businesses and individuals from across the area come together to award the students for their success not only in the show ring but for the hard work and dedication they put into their projects. Students own and care for their project for at least three months to a year. The amount of time exhibitors spend on feeding and caring for their animals is almost unbelievable at times. These type of projects teach students time management, responsibility, communication skills, and husbandry skills.
All money raised for the Junior Premium Sale is spent 100% on the kids. Businesses and individuals that donate to the premium sale may do so in advance of the sale, and will be given a package of passes based on the amount of the donation. The Premium Sale is a great opportunity to encourage youth to participate in agriculture and to promote the life skills student learn through their projects.
