You can still support the exhibitors, even if you can’t attend the auction. Just authorize the SALE COMMITTEE to purchase animals at ringside on your behalf.
The Junior Livestock Auction is the climax of a year’s activity for 4-H and FFA. It is a learning and business venture. The young exhibitors select, feed and groom either a market beef, lamb or hog. These exhibitors each spend an average of 300 hours feeding and fitting their stock for the show. These are hours invested in sound education, in learning responsibility and basic principles of our free market system. The product of their year’s labor is then brought to the Fair to be judged, graded and sold.
Your support of the Junior Sale will enable these 4-H and FFA exhibitors to earn funds for college, to buy more animals and give them a background in good business. Select your animal yourself, OR have the Sale Committee help you bid.
