2014 Gratz Fair
Grand Champion Market Steer
Ryan Lehman, of Halifax, exhibited the Grand Champion Market Steer at the Gratz Fair on September 17, 2014. Lehman attends Halifax Area School and is a member of the Upper Dauphin Area Livestock Club.
He purchased this steer—PVSM Worker Bee, aka “Bubba”—from Powell’s Valley Simmentals and has been working with him on a daily basis to prepare for this show. Bubba, who is ¾ Simmental, weighed 1465 pounds. In addition to exhibiting the Grand Champion Steer, Lehman also placed first in showmanship.
Earlier in the summer, Bubba earned Grand Champion Market Steer at the Dauphin County 4H Fair.
On September 19, at the Clair A. Hartman Youth Livestock Sale, Bubba was purchased for $3400 by Hoss’s Steak and Sea House. We greatly appreciate Hoss’s for supporting youth in agriculture.
