Being in the Governor’s Sale of Champions at the state fair is something all livestock exhibitors dream about, and one Morrisonville teen got to participate in the event on Tuesday. 13-year-old Cooper Bertilino showed his grand champion barrow at this year’s Sale of Champions.

 

Bertilino says the barrow got it’s name for a special reason.

 

 

Bertilino says although presenting in the collesium was nerve-wracking for him, his barrow behaved just as he expected.

 

 

As one of the ten Sale of Champions participants, Bertilino will receive $6,000 in scholarships from AT&T and the CME group.
