Jr. Livestock Auction Rewards Months of Hard Work

sat at fair 090Months of hard work by local 4-H, FFA, Grange and Independent youth pay off as locally raised beef, swine, lambs, goats, rabbits and poultry are auctioned to the highest bidder during the Amador County Fair’s Junior Livestock Auction, Sunday, August 1st.  The youth spend hours after school and on weekends feeding, grooming and learning how to show their animals in the judging ring. Now they will discover that all that hard work can be rewarded with a paycheck, but the lessons learned in responsibility are theirs for a lifetime.

The event is one of the best Junior livestock auctions in northern California.  The money earned by the students often goes to the purchase of an animal to raise next year, repays parents for feed bills or helps along the way towards college savings accounts. The auction starts Saturday morning at 9:00 am, following buyers registration at 8:00 am. Private individuals, groups and businesses may purchase any of the hundreds of top quality livestock raised as 4-H, FFA and Grange projects. A silent auction for Ag Mechanics projects begins at noon.

The auction also provides an opportunity for the community to donate back to worthwhile organizations, as well as helping the kids who are selling their animals.  If you don’t have room in your own freezer for the meat from the animals, offer to add money to one of the sales. There may be a local food closet that would be grateful to receive a donation of your purchase. Check with those organizations first to see if they can accept fresh meat. Some organizations will also buy meat for an upcoming barbecue or dinner.
