The Market Stock Sale held each year on Friday of Fair week features livestock raised and shown by 4-H and FFA exhibitors. 2019’s Auction generated more than $1,012,000 for local 4-H and FFA members, making it the largest grossing youth auction in the state. In 2020, despite the fair being cancelled, the Market Stock Committee managed to still put on an amazing sale to help support our local youth. 336 youth exhibitors sold their livestock for a total of $647,000.
The Sale of Champions kicks off the auction at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 27. We will have two sale rings running concurrently while hosting breakfast and lunch for buyers in the Hospitality Area thanks to Northwest Farm Credit Services and Les Schwab. Buyers can take a break from the action, have a bite to eat and visit with friends while keeping an eye on the sale order on the video screens.
