BUYER PROCESSING GUIDELINES
2015 4-H/FFA Livestock Sale Information Coming Soon!
The 4-H and FFA Auction is a great place to buy locally grown products. The 4-H/FFA Livestock Auction is held annually to provide a special auction for 4-H and FFA exhibitors to sell their market animal projects. Exhibitors who sell livestock use the proceeds to re-invest in future 4-H/FFA projects, or they may set their earnings aside for an educational and/or business expense.
As a buyer, you are investing in these exhibitors’ futures by encouraging them to stay involved in agriculture. The 4-H and FFA members are involved in various educational, community service projects, and entertainment activities throughout the year.
What are the benefits of being a buyer in the Livestock Auction?
All animals sold will grade select or better as determined by a state grader. You will receive top quality, locally raised beef, pork, lamb and goat.
