A new record was set at the Iowa Governor’s Charity Steer Show Saturday. The show and sale raised $217,500 for the Ronald McDonald Houses. Governor Terry Branstad says he never imagined the event would be so successful when he started it 32 years ago.

The Governor partners with the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association and Iowa Beef Industry Council on the show. Chair Roger Brummett says they’re proud to support this charity.

The winning steer was owned by Ben Van Glan of Vail and shown by Iowa Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds.
The sale high was $29,000 for the steer owned by Tanner Knupp of Washington and shown by Market to Market host Mike Pearson. This weekend’s record pushed the total raised to just shy of $2.5 million.
