A grand champion moment and fair pageantry …

The grand champion market steer, shown by Kayden Mascheck for the late exhibitor Case Beken, was purchased by Friends of Case Beken for a record breaking $52,250 at the Colorado County Fair Junior Market Sale last Saturday afternoon at the Colorado County Fair Ag Complex and Fairgrounds in Columbus. On hand for the recognition were, from left, Monte Williams, Billy and Larry Bell, Tammie Binford, Charlene and Tyler Bell, Scott Huette, Brenda Bell, Tim Beken, Colorado County Fair King and Membership King Coy Koehl, Fair Queen Brooke Center, Paige Dupree and Junior Fair Queen Brooklyn Eden. Beken, 14, died on Sunday from a brain tumor in Victoria after he attended last Friday’s grand champion crowning in an ambulance.
