4-H Members Auction Off Livestock

4-HCORVALLIS, Ore. — The animals are always a big draw, come fair time. And it’s no different at the Benton County Fair.

4-H members have been raising all kinds of animals–pigs, sheep, goats, steer–and you can check them all out this week.

Many of the participants will auction off their animals. Kids say it teaches them more about where their food comes from, among other things.

“Responsibility and learn how to treat an animal,” said 4-H member Toben Stueve.

“I don’t know if the store-bought animals have been treated properly and these have been treated properly,” said 4-H member Matthew Bevandich.

the fair runs through saturday, and kids under the age of 18 get in for free every day.
