Support 4-H youth at the Aug. 6 Junior Livestock Sale

Watch video for a peek into the sale and see it for yourself Aug. 6 at 6:30 p.m.

The hometown event of the season, the 2021 Douglas County Fair & Rodeo, gears up later this month. One must-see item on the schedule each year is the Junior Livestock Sale, where local 4-H participants sell their beef, swine, sheep, poultry, goats and rabbits to the highest bidders.

Watch this video to learn more about how the Livestock Sale is an investment in the youth of the community and the future of agriculture and hear from some of the participants. Bring the whole family to the Fair on Friday, Aug. 6 at 6:30 p.m. for this year’s exciting sale and more family fun.

The 4-H program that culminates in the Livestock Sale teaches youth valuable leadership skills and each bid directly supports the exhibitors selling their livestock and promotes the future of agriculture through funding scholarships.

Support these young community leaders by registering now to bid on and buy premium livestock – at the in-person sale or live online. In 2020 the Junior Livestock Sale generated a total of $401,195 thanks to generous buyers who participated.

The Douglas County Fair & Rodeo kicks off with a parade through historic downtown Castle Rock on Saturday, July 31 and runs through Sunday, August 8 with plenty to keep the whole family entertained. Find a complete schedule of events, including the Junior Livestock Sale, mutton bustin’, carnival, live music, several PRCA Rodeos, Xtreme Bulls and more.
