SLV FAIR Jr Livestock Sale

Friday August 9, 2019 6:00pm

The McMullen Building - Ski HI Park

Each year, approximately 185 youth, ages 8-19 years old, participate in the Junior Livestock Sale. The primary purpose of the sale is for the youth to learn responsibility, time management skills, record keeping and public speaking, while working to earn back their investment on the animal they are selling.

 

The majority of the youth have spent their own money on the initial investment for the caring and feeding of their animal. Funds raised from each animal sold returns to the youth as funds for college.

 

This program not only strives to help our youth become responsible leaders that are invested in their home community, but also to bring the best animals in the San Luis Valley to be exhibited as safe and wholesome products.
