The American Royal – 2020 Junior Premium Livestock Auction

The American Royal Complex was the site for the 2020 American Royal Junior Premium Livestock Auction. The event was held on October 17th and also included a virtual option. There were 61 exhibitors. The Grand Champion Market Steer was purchased by the Patterson Foundation for $280,000 – and yes, that’s a new record! Numerous area food pantries were among the beneficiaries.

The Patterson Foundation purchased the Grand Champion Goat. Garrison Straka, Hayden Schroader, and Matt Smith and Lindsey Patterson Smith are pictured.
