Delta County 4-H'ers and FFA students weighed in their prospective market swine, sheep and goats on Saturday, April 28. Excitement was high for the 176 local kids who brought 94 barrows and 61 gilts, and 86 sheep and 63 goats to be weighed in, because the annual swine, sheep and goat weigh-in is the first step toward raising these animals for the 2012 Junior Market Livestock Sale.
The sale will be held Saturday, Aug. 11, during the Delta County Fair. Of the 304 animals weighed in, 213 qualify for the Delta County Bred & Fed program.
With weigh-in over, these 4-H and FFA kids will now concentrate on raising the best animals possible to offer to buyers over the auction block this summer. Last year, at the 2011 Delta County Fair, local kids sold 135 of their swine, sheep and goats to generous buyers for total sales of $112,800. The sale committee thanks these buyers for their support of local 4-H and FFA kids last year, and invites them to attend the 2012 Junior Market Livestock Sale.
