(Sedalia, MO) -Spencer Scotten, son of Shannon and Krista Scotten, is the exhibitor of the 2014 Grand Champion Meat Goat at the Missouri State Fair.  Spencer is from Nevada, and a member of the Nevada FFA Chapter. Spencer’s prize-winning Boer goat weighed 95 pounds.

The Reserve Grand Champion Meat Goat honor went to Skyler Scotten from Nevada, and a member of the Show-Me 4-H Club. He is the son of Shannon and Krista Scotten. Skyler’s Boer goat weighed 85 pounds.

On Aug. 16, both Spencer and Skyler Scotten will sell their Boer goats in two of 12 lots offered in the Youth in Agriculture (YIA) Sale of Champions. Proceeds from the annual sale benefit both the winning exhibitors and the Missouri State Fair Foundation YIA Scholarship Program.

Many livestock exhibitors will work toward earning a place in the ring at the time-honored Sale of Champions Auction. Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion Steers, Barrows, Lambs, Meat Goats, Pens of Chickens and Pens of Rabbits will be featured in the auction, which will be held at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 16, in the Lowell Mohler Assembly Hall. The auction will be broadcast live on Live Auctions TV.

Through the generous support of YIA sponsors and the Missouri State Fair Foundation, the Missouri State Fair is able to award scholarships each year to Missouri youth pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field. Last year there were thirty-seven $1,000 scholarships and one supreme $2,500 scholarship awarded to youth across Missouri.  Since 1992, 474 Missouri youth have received more than $400,500 in scholarships.

“The success of the Sale is credited to the support from Missouri Youth in Agriculture sponsors,” said Wayne Yokley, Chairman of the YIA Committee, and Superintendent of the Sale of Champions.  “Their donations help ensure we are able to continue supporting our young people as they grow in agriculture and pursue higher education.”

A complete listing of the 2013 YIA Sponsors is available on the Fair’s website. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor this year, or receiving more information about sponsorship, can visit www.moyouthinag.org, or contact Yokley at 573-690-8987, Rodney Heimer at 217-257-6182, Sharon Topliff at 573-353-0543 or Mike Williams at 816-797-5450.
