As the 2022 Douglas County Fair & Rodeo gets underway this Friday, July 29 — one must-see event on the schedule is the Junior Livestock Sale, where local 4-H participants sell their beef, swine, sheep, poultry, goats and rabbits to the highest bidder.
For more than 60 years, the Livestock Sale has been an investment in the youth of the community and the future of agriculture. Bring the whole family to the Fair at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, for this year’s exciting sale and more family fun.
The 4-H program, which culminates in the annual Livestock Sale, teaches youth valuable leadership skills. Each bid directly supports the exhibitors selling their livestock and promotes the future of agriculture through funding scholarships.
Register in person at the Livestock Sale to bid on and buy premium livestock. There is no online auction this year. In 2021, the Junior Livestock Sale generated $606,005 thanks to generous buyers who participated.
The Douglas County Fair & Rodeo kicks off with a concert by Country music star Josh Turner Friday, July 29, followed by a parade through historic downtown Castle Rock on Saturday, July 30, and will include more than a week of exciting new events and traditional family fun before wrapping up Sunday, Aug. 7.
