The 2nd Annual Youth Investment Livestock Auction was held August 30 at the Franklin County Farm Bureau Pavilion, Lakeview Park. The livestock auction helps the youth exhibitors receive monetary benefits to offset expenses incurred by participating in 4H and FFA livestock projects. The youth participants gain valuable knowledge, responsibility and leadership skills through raising quality livestock and participating in agricultural exhibitions.
The buyers purchase a quality produced livestock animal where 100% of the proceeds provide needed financial support to Franklin County youth. Buyers have three options at the end of the sale:
- the buyer(s) may choose to resell the animal for the pre-established floor price
- the buyer(s) may choose to keep the animal purchased and have the animal processed
- the buyer(s) can donate the animal to the sale committee to resell the animal and keep the proceeds in a general fund to help with future educational or sale related expenses
This is the second year that Franklin County Farm Bureau has invested in the Youth Investment Auction. Last year we purchased a hog that was processed and donated to the Access Soup Kitchen. The program was such a huge success for the youth participants as well as providing food for our community, we purchased two lambs that will be processed and donated to the Access Soup Kitchen again this year.
