Livestock Sale – Saturday, August 4, at 1 p.m.

The Garfield County Junior Livestock sale is the culmination of the year’s work for 4-H and FFA members. They have spent months selecting, training and feeding their animals for the fair. The sale also provides youth the funds to begin the next year’s projects. Many of these youth save a portion of these funds for their upcoming college careers. Ultimately, you help support a unique educational program in agriculture. You support a program that emphasizes involvement in projects that teach strong morals and values, a program that provides a drug-free environment, and a program that promotes citizenship, leadership and community involvement. Throughout their involvement, youth are learning how to produce food for your table, as well as how to be in business for themselves. The price you pay today encourages youth participation and is a small investment in the future of American agriculture
