Welcome to the Clark County Fair Junior Livestock Auction website! This website exists to help answer questions and promote our annual Junior Livestock Auction, showcasing our local 4-H and FFA livestock exhibitors, and their market animal projects.

The Junior Livestock Auction is traditionally held on the second Saturday of the Clark County Fair and will be held virtually on August 15, 2020 with the Clark County Fair being cancelled this year due to COVID-19. FFA and 4H members will be busy all year - starting in the Fall - preparing to exhibit their animals at the fair - rabbits, beef, goats, hogs, poultry and sheep.

The 2019 Junior Livestock Auction at the Clark County Fair was a HUGE SUCCESS for FFA and 4-H youth. Thank you to all of the supporters! There were 466 buyers who purchased 272 animals from 144 exhibitors. The Clark County JLA is looking forward to a successful 2020 Auction!

These youth are the leaders of tomorrow. The FFA and 4H programs are designed to teach their members valuable leadership skills that will benefit them in any career they may choose. In addition to regular project meetings and field days, they will invest hundreds of hours over the next year with daily feeding, cleaning and handling of the project animals, in order to prepare them for the annual fair.

At the fair, animals are judged by professional livestock evaluators, and those that meet established market quality standards will be auctioned at the next Junior Livestock Auction. Since one of the goals of these projects is to make a profit we encourage everyone to come to the auction and make a purchase to help our young people meet their goals and reward them for all of their hard work and commitment to becoming the leaders of tomorrow.
