The County Fair is typically the culmination of many months of hard work and dedication by the youth raising livestock projects. Junior Livestock Auctions like the Santa Clara County Fair Lonnie Toensfeldt Memorial Junior Livestock Auction are the final marketplace for ribbon winning livestock such as steers, lambs, hogs, and goats, as well as, chickens, rabbits, and turkeys. These animals have all been raised by junior exhibitors in 4H, FFA or independence youth organizations ranging in age from 9 to 19. While raising these market animals, youth learn life skills such as responsibility, time management, problem solving and animal husbandry all which will last a lifetime. Junior livestock auctions are the place for these youth exhibitors to sell those projects that they have worked so hard on and invested so much time and money into.
