Want to be a Livestock Buyer?

Thank you for participating in the 2024 4-H/FFA Youth Livestock Sale. The sale is a part of our Fair that the Fair Association is proud to sponsor and facilitate for the steer and swine participants. Please use the link or QR code to register as a buyer. All buyers must complete the online form prior to the sale.
The Clay County Agricultural Fair’s Steer and Swine auction is the end result of the 4-H and FFA Youth Member’s year-long projects. It is an educational experience, as well as a business venture. The members get the opportunity to have a “hands-on” experience while learning all about the beef and pork markets. They discover what agriculture production is all about and the kind of responsibility necessary to survive in it.

The members have selected, fed, and groomed their steers and hogs for competition and marketing. At this market, everyone hopes to receive better prices than the current market prices. Having community support at the auction makes it possible for the young people to receive recognition and the motivation to earn and save college funds or to buy more animals and possibly start their own herd. Many youth go through this program and come out as great leaders, educators, and responsible adults.

Registrations after Monday, April 8th, we will not mail tickets with the fear that they will not arrive before Friday, April 12th.
