The 2011 Goliad County Livestock Show Auction brought in more money than it has in the last two years.

The auction earned $158,009, which is $6,000 more than last year's show collected.

"I think the economy's just better," said Becky Ham, 4-H program assistant. "Things are just on the uprise.

And the earnings haven't stopped yet. Ham said people are still turning in add-on forms, which allow donors to give money to a project or exhibitor of their choice.

"I'm almost positive (the add-ons) are way higher this year," Ham said.
