Why Support the Junior Livestock Auction?
The Junior Livestock Auction Supports Our Hard-Working Youth
The Fair's Jr. Livestock Auction is the culmination of a year's work for young aspiring ranchers and farmers who select, purchase, feed, and groom livestock to be judged, graded and sold at the Fair. Their projects include steers, lambs, hogs, rabbits and poultry.
As a learning and business venture for young men and women, the Sonoma County Fair Junior Livestock Auction is their market place... and you...their prospective buyer. The judges at the Sonoma County Fair select only the best animals to sell at the Junior Livestock Auction. Such quality demands a premium price.

How Can You Participate?
Your purchase will help support an educational program. These youth are learning to produce food for your table. They are also learning how to be in business for themselves. At their age, their business is on a small scale and their costs are higher than the commercial producer. Help them achieve success and insure continued food production by supporting them now. The price you pay today encourages youth participation and is a small investment in the future of America. Profits from the sale of these animals are usually reinvested in better animals or set aside for future educational expenses. Give us a call or send us an email and we will have an auction solicitor get back to you soon.
