A Beeville, Texas youth was the big winner at the Fort Worth Stock Show Champions Saturday. The Grand Champion steer named Spider Monkey, shown by 18-year-old Cuatro Schauer, was sold for 230-thousand dollars!

Eighteen-year-old Cuatro Schauer gives his reaction.

This is the highest price paid for the top steer in the event’s 116-year history. That works out to more than 173-dollars per pound for the 1,328-pound European Crossbred.

The buyer was Dick Wallwrath of Centerville. He has become something of a legend in agricultural circles by purchasing livestock and funding numerous scholarships. His donations to young people in agriculture over the past decade includes 1.5-million dollars to Texas FFA – making him the largest donor in that organization’s 83-year history.
