Supporting Youth Livestock Projects

Auction Info

When: Saturday, September 7th, 2024 - Starting at 10 am

Where: Swine Barn @ Gold Country Fairgrounds 

The Junior Livestock Auction and Small Livestock Auction are the culmination of a year’s activity for Placer County’s 4-H, FFA and Independent exhibitors.  These young exhibitors select, feed and groom their animals, and the Gold Country Fair is where they present their projects to the judge and receive the monetary value for their product along with public recognition for their efforts.  All livestock exhibitors have completed the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals certification, which stresses animal well-being, food safety, and character awareness.
