    Paula Brandt - Sauk Co Fair Update - 7-1-20

    Parents and supporters are mobilizing to try and develop alternate events that allow youth to still exhibit their livestock this summer.  One of those groups is in Sauk County.

    Friday and Saturday, July 10-11, the Juneau County Fairgrounds in Mauston will be the backdrop for the Sauk County Livestock Scramble - the alternate livestock show created after the Sauk County Fair was cancelled.

    Paul Brandt is one of the parents and organizers behind the event which features face-to-face judging and an on-line support auction which opens on Thursday, July 9th.

    Any youth that were planning on exhibiting at the Sauk County Fair are eligible to participate.  Find more details at Sauk County Livestock Scramble.
    The on line "support" auction is available at Gavin Brothers Auction.

    Angie Loosen - Washington Co Auction Alternative

    An online auction of market animals raised by Washington County youth will be held July 10 and 11. The auction will feature beef steers, market hogs, and market lambs that otherwise would have been shown and sold at the cancelled Washington County Fair.

    Youth have been working on their projects for many months, and in some cases since last year. Local volunteers got together to coordinate an online auction to allow these youths to sell their projects.

    With the recent disruption in supply chain this auction offers an opportunity to purchase locally raised, high quality meat while supporting area youth. All animals have a guaranteed processing date; this is especially important as many processors are completely booked and are currently taking appointments well into 2021.

    Bidders will have the opportunity to purchase the animal outright or to donate a set amount toward an exhibitor. Farmers Grain and Feed, LLC of Allenton, WI, donated the funds to sponsor the web hosting expenses of the sale meaning all proceeds go directly into the youths’ pockets.

    The sale will be posted early next week at https://badgerstateauction.hibid.com/
