 Support Our Youth to Build the Future:

Your involvement in the livestock sale is an investment in the future.  Youth that participate in livestock projects learn responsibility, time management, record keeping, and public speaking.

 An educational process begins, which is guided by extension agents, families, and leaders.  This program is helping youth become responsible, involved community leaders.

 Build a partnership between buyers and families. Families that have youth in livestock projects are appreciative of the support that is received and will in turn support those that have supported them.



The goal of all 4-H members is to bring the best animals in Larimer County to the Junior Livestock Sale. 

 It is the responsibility of the youth exhibitors to follow all wholesome meat assurance program guidelines when feeding and caring for their project in order to provide a safe and wholesome product.

 How does the sale work?

 The sale starts at 4:30 PM, Wednesday, August 6th at the Larimer County Fairgrounds in the Ranch-Way FeedsLivestock Pavilion.

The animals are sold by the head not by  weight.  Prior to the sale, the current market price of each species of animals is determined by the area packing plants.  Each buyer in attendance will receive a packet of information containing the youth’s name, species being sold, the weight of the animal and their market price.  Species are sold on a rotating basis.

If you are the highest bidder,  you will be asked to sign a sales slip indicating if the animal is for resale (Option A) or for personal consumption (Option B). 

Buyers will receive a complimentary photograph of the animal taken with their exhibitor.


 Bidding Process : Buyer’s Options

 Option A: Resale.  The buyer bids on an animal and upon the successful bid, the buyer pays the difference between the bid price and the established market price.  The animal is then sold to a packer for the market price.

 For example: bid is $550 for a 130 lb. lamb

 Bid                                     =    $550

Buy-Back (Market Price)     =  $150

Buyer Pays                        =    $400

Option B: Animals may be purchased for the buyer’s own personal consumption.  Consider using it for employee incentives, a fund raising activity, a picnic or club barbecue. A list of local processors will be available.

Delivery to the processor will be arranged by the Livestock Sale Committee.

Buyer’s Groups are a great way to join others in the purchase of an animal and share the buy.  A group can be people known to each other or simply contact a livestock sale committee member and ask to join a group.

 Additional Donations or Add-Ons are easy and a great way to increase the total sale price for a youth.  The add-on amount gets directly credited to the total sale amount for the youth you choose and no bidding is necessary to participate.  Additional contributions can also be made to a particular species or the overall Livestock Sale.



Cash, Check, Master Card or Visa are accepted.
