One of the exhibitors this year was Kinley Holmes of Ainsworth, Iowa. Kinley’s steer, Rick, was purchased by the Iowa Bankers Association to participate in this event. Jared Holmes, father of Kinley, said, “An absolute experience…Our family can’t thank everyone enough for all the support!!!! We sold Rick for $46,000 purchased by friends of Kinley and Rick…every penny went to a cause much bigger than any of us. We are so proud of all of our kids (and their tears) and everyone that had our back all year long! With tear filled eyes….THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!”
