DENVER (AP) - The grand champion steer at the National Western Stock Show Junior Livestock Auction fetched $117,000, and the grand champion lamb went for $50,000.

Sixteen-year-old Macey Goretska says her grand champion steer, Remi, earned her a big boost for her college fund.

Macey gets 90 percent of the winning bid, and 10 percent of all winning bids goes to scholarships for students studying agriculture and rural medicine.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/h3arp9q ), the top eight winners brought in $412,000 on Friday, an all-time high.
