Gateway purchased Lauren Blon's grand champion turkey at the 2017 Belmont County Fair. Gateway believes it’s important to support these kids and the local community we serve.
Gateway Supports Local Community at 4H Auction
Posted November 9, 2017
Gateway has been a regular attendee at the Belmont County Fair over the past several years, frequently purchasing animals from 4H participants. And this year was no different.
“It’s really important Gateway Royalty is here today at the Belmont County Fair just to give back to the community, as well as give back to these kids who work real hard at raising these animals,” said Blaine Grace, a Gateway royalty buyer.
One of the impressive animals Gateway was excited to take home from the 2017 Fair was Rylan Luyster’s market hog.
Rylan, a 4H member, put a lot of time and effort into raising his pig. He was proud and happy when Gateway purchased the animal at auction.
“Taking care of an animal is a lot of hard work. It teaches responsibility to take care of what’s yours,” Rylan said. “The money I get from selling my pig will help me get in college and buy my pigs next year.”
This wasn’t Gateway’s first time purchasing an animal from the Luyster family. At the 2015 Belmont County Fair, we purchased Colton Luyster’s reserve grand champion market steer. Clearly this is a family that knows a thing or two about hard work!
At Gateway, we look forward to continually supporting the community and purchasing many more animals at the Belmont County Fair in years to come.
If you live in Belmont County and have received anything in the mail from Gateway Royalty, we’d love the opportunity to talk with you and answer any questions you may have about the oil and gas industry or potentially selling some of your mineral or royalty interests.
