Graphic: How Much the Kentucky Grand Champion Ham Has Netted Since 1964

2013-08-22_Farm_Bureau_Breakfast1_0.jpg

  This morning marks the 51st year the Kentucky Farm Bureau has hosted its country ham breakfast at the Kentucky State Fair. Everyone comes together, eats breakfast, and listens to politicians. And then, there's the main event: The auction of the state fair's grand champion ham. The money goes to the charity of the winning bidder's choice.We took the prices the hams have sold for and adjusted them for inflation. As you can see from the graph, some years netted more than others.
