About the Rogers County Premium Auction

The top 15 market steers, 15 market lambs, 15 barrows and 5 market goats from the Rogers County Fair species shows make the premium sale. Along with the market animals 30% of breeding animals for beef, sheep, swine and goats are included in the auction. The Grand and reserve grand dairy heifers are also included. The premium sale takes place the Monday following the Rogers County Fall Fair at 7 pm.

Businesses and individuals who would like to contribute are invited to come to the premium sale to bid on the animals. If you would like to donate at a smaller amount you can always add-on an amount of your choosing.

In 2015 the community supported the Rogers County Premium Auction with $193,000 in donations. 97% of those funds went directly to individual youth exhibiting livestock projects at the Rogers County Fair. The premium auction included 76 Rogers County Junior Livestock Exhibitors that are 4-H or FFA members showing beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, sheep, or goats.

About the Showmanship Scholarship Program

The showmanship scholarship program is offered through the Rogers County Premium Auction and fully sponsored by Rogers State University. The program awards a 4-year scholarship for tuition and fees for the top Senior Showmanship winner in each of the species (beef cattle, swine, sheep, goats, and new in 2017 will be dairy cattle).

Scholarships are valued at $4,000 each; $20,000 in scholarships are awarded by Rogers State University each year. The scholarship program started in 2011.
