Five Angus steers, weighing a total of 5,665 pounds and composing the second place Angus group, with Robbie and Rickey Elliott of Monmouth, Route 4 as exhibitors, also were purchased by Dubuque Packing Co., for $1,430.41, on a top bid of $25.25 per hundredweight. Bidding for the single animals and, groups, making up the special sales in this morning's auction, followed to an even greater degree the lower price pattern set in the bids for the champion and reserve champion steers. One observation, as the steers failed to keep pace with last year's bidding, was that the owners last fall paid more for the calves, from which today's steers were developed, than did the exhibitors who had their steers in the 1962 festival. Deduction Covers Costs In addition to the special sales, this morning's auction also included 16 Angus pens, 22 Hereford pens, 35 Angus singles, 37 Hereford singles, and eight scramble. A deduction of one per cent from the sale price is made to cover expenses in connection with the auction and the sale of calves for next year's festival, which will take place later.
