Watertown Youth Donates Steer Sale Proceeds To Scholarship Fund

(Beaver Dam) A touching moment during Thursday night’s Meat Animal Auction at the Dodge County Fair. Autumn Renhack of Watertown gave the proceeds from the sale of her 15-hundred pound steer to the Katie Christopherson Memorial Scholarship Fund. Katie was a friend of Autumn’s who died in a tragic car accident in June. Autumn says Katie had a big heart. She says the Scholarship Fund is to help graduated seniors to continue their education in agriculture. The steer was first purchased by Friends of Katie at $11 a pound but was donated back. Ballweg Implement then bought the steer for $6 a pound.
