You are cordially invited to participate in this year’s market livestock auctions during the Portage County Randolph Fair. The Junior Fair auctions give you, as an individual or as a business, an opportunity to promote your services and/or support local youth. The youth who bring market animal projects have dedicated their time and energies to care for their project and to also learn about their animal(s). Raising an animal holds many valuable lessons and through these projects they learn about agribusiness, quality assurance, livestock judging, marketing and working together. They also develop a work ethic and will use this knowledge in the future which will make our community better.
The youth, who participate in these projects, rely upon the funds received from the auction to pay off investments and production costs and most will invest their profits in their future education. We are lucky to have many past participants return as adults to become advisors, volunteers, mentors, and supporters of the auctions.
After the sale, buyers will have their names listed in the barns with the animals they have purchased. Buyers will also be listed in various printed ads after the fair. Buyers will receive a sale day admission pass for the next year’s fair in a special mailing prior to that year’s fair.
