THE 2016 GRAND CHAMPION STEER was presented for auction Friday, Aug. 12 at the Shiawassee County Fair by Haley Grombir. Last year’s grand champion steer was sold by Troy Markley, of Byron, for a Shiawassee County Fair record $7 per pound, but Grombir, of New Lothrop, set the new record at $8 per pound. On the other end of the record-setting purchase was the buyer, Webster Garner Oil & Propane, whose owner, Dennis Fuller, is shown next to Grombir, along with 2016 Fair Queen, Allison Luchenbill, and Attendant, Hailey Andres (far left).
