DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - This year's Grand Champion Market Steer named "Clifford" just broke a big record at the State Fair of Texas, selling for $131,000 to III Forks Steakhouse.

Jagger Horn, 14, from Anson, Texas  raised the steer.

"He gets fed twice a day.... whatever he wants he gets," said Horn.

And it paid off.

Horn was one of more than 250 students from 4HH and FFA clubs across the state participating in Friday's auction.

The teen will receive a portion of the funds for his college education, while the rest of the funds are donated to the State Fair Youth Scholarship Program.
