Urbana Kroger meat cutter/clerk Matt Price trims the beef to be sold from this year’s Ohio State Fair Junior Fair Market Beef Grand Champion. The Kroger Co. purchased the winning animal for $50,000, which was sent to the Urbana store for cutting and sale. The grand champion steer was shown by Tyler Clark of Miami County. The Urbana store was chosen because it is in Kroger’s Columbus distribution district and Champaign County’s Kroger is closest to Miami County.
The 2015 Ohio State Fair Junior Fair Grand Champion Market Beef is for sale at the Urbana Kroger store.
