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, with Sale of Champions at 2:00. Buyers registration starts 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 Independent projects. The auction for Ag Mechanics projects begins just after lunch.
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 donate the meat or its market value to one them.
