How much did bidders pay for the animals auctioned off at the Douglas County Fair?

If the bidder simply wanted the animal for a meat company, the bidder paid the premium bid. If the buyer wanted to keep the animal, the buyer paid the total price.

For example, the Grand Champion Market Hog received a base bid of $122.40. It was purchased by Subway Restaurants with a premium bid of $1,100. So the total sale equaled $1,222.40.
