Baker County Fair ~ Halfway
Jr. Livestock Auction
What makes the Jr. Livestock
Auction Special ?

The young people involved have a goal to produce the highest quality food for your table. Achieving this goal takes a great deal of time & responsibility. Engaging in financial obligations and learning how to manage their own business operations only
scratches the surface of the educational benefits. On a small scale as individuals, however, their costs are higher than commercial producers. 

YOUR SUPPORT IS VITAL!

When you purchase an animal at the Junior Livestock Auction, you are buying prize
winning livestock raised by the youth of our county. It also brings you the highest quality beef, pork, lamb, poultry, goat and rabbit for your dining pleasure.

How the Auction Works ~ Bidding

You will be provided a sales catalog that lists all of the animals along with their weights and owners. As each animal is led into the ring, the auctioneer asks for bids in cents per pound. The bidding continues until the high bid is reached, with the animal going to the highest bidder. If you want help in the bidding, there are official
Auction Committee members who will be glad to assist you. Remember, whether you buy or not, your bidding helps to increase the sale price of the animal.

How You Can Use an Animal

Individual Buyers
• Store in your freezer for a year’s supply of top quality meat.
• Give portions of the meat as special gifts to friends and relatives.
