Kentucky Farm Bureau News - September 2011


For the sixth time in the past eight years Republic Bank purchased the Grand Champion Country Ham at KFB's State Fair breakfast, submitting a top bid of $600,000 for the 16.9-pound ham from Broadbent B&B Foods. The winning bid amounted to about $35,000 per pound of ham.

The money goes to the charity of the bidder's choice. As a result, the KFB breakfast has helped raise more than $6.2 million for charities during its 48-year history.   right-arrow September 2011
