Ten-year-old Saige Martin only had one question after she walked off the auction platform with her grand champion steer on Friday.
“Did I beat my brother?”
That she did. Her market steer Corndog sold for a record-breaking $110,000, six grand more than Stock Martin’s grand champion sold for during last year’s youth livestock auction at the State Fair.
Fair officials believe this is the first time a brother-sister duo has won the grand champion steer category back to back.
The two youngsters, who live in the Panhandle town of Hereford, are quickly racking up bragging rights across the state.
This year alone wins include champion designations at the Pecan Classic in Seguin and the Panhandle Parade of Breeds Steer/Heifer Show in Plainview for Saige. Twelve-year-old Stock had a reserve champion at the Houston Livestock Show, and his champion European Cross steer brought in $205,000 during the Junior Sale of Champions at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.
