The gallon of dairy cattle milk was brought to the Mercer County Fair Livestock Auction stage by Zachary Guggenbiller, son of Mr. and Mrs. Daryl Guggenbiller of Barnyard Boosters. He showed the Holstein Senior Champion Dairy milk producer. The record $12,250 raised in the auction for the milk is divided among all the dairy exhibitors, since they can't auction their animals, the Livestock Auction Committee for expenses and the Dairy Exhibitor Fund of the fair dairy department.
