Teller County 4-H Virtual Livestock Auction 2020
Community Event Calendar
The Teller County Association of Fairs and Shows (TCAFAS) is proud to provide a platform to auction our 4-H market animals. All Teller County 4-H market animal projects will be sold on during this auction. All proceeds go to support the 4-H youth who raised the animals. Neither the Fair Board or Extension take any percentage or fees for the sale.
The auction is a way to encourage youth to raise market animals so they learn the skills, knowledge, and physical responsibilities of raising an animal and how our products enter the food distribution system. All youth are required to attend a Meat Quality Assurance training to learn how to safely handle their animals, enhance bio-security, and the process of administering medications when necessary and the withdraw time for each medication to ensure healthy animals entering the food distribution chain.
In addition, we feel some of the most important lessons learned by raising animals include dedication, planning, responsibility, financial knowledge, and prioritizing. Your generous bids will help these youth be able to purchase animals for next year, purchase equipment, and/or save for college. We appreciate your interest in supporting our Teller County youth.
