The Junior Livestock Sale is scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11.The livestock sale is the culmination of months of hard work for exhibitors who have spent countless hours feeding, grooming, exercising and working with their livestock projects to get them ready for the county fair. By purchasing a market animal(s) at the livestock auction, you are helping finance the future of a 4-H/FFA member. Members typically use profits from the sale of their project(s) to purchase animals for the next year, or set aside the money for college. Market livestock is sold by the head with the exception of rabbits, chickens, turkeys and dairy milk products, which are sold by the lot. For more information about the sale, visit the fair website at DeltaCountyFair.com.
