When you purchase an animal at the Junior Livestock Auction, you are buying more than a prize-winning animal raised by 4-H & FFA members. You are establishing yourself as a partner in helping young people in our community develop essential skills and attitudes. Most 4-H & FFA members save a significant portion of the funds generated from the sale of their animal for college or their first car.
4-H and FFA Members who participate in a market animal project develop:
- Work ethic
- Entrepreneurship Experience
- Marketing Skills and Strategies
- Recordkeeping and Financial Management Skills
- Leadership & Teamwork
The Jackson County Junior Livestock Auction Committee holds 3 sales/auctions a year at the Olsrud Pavilion at the Jackson County Expo, at 1 Peninger Road, Central Point, Oregon. Buyers BBQs begin 60-90 minutes before the start of each auction.
New buyers can request complementary barbecue tickets via the contact us form.
