Gogebic County 4H Livestock Auction
This this year marks the 45th 4-H Market Animal Auction, which will be held on Saturday, August 14, at the Gogebic County Fair, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Danny Wanink of Wakefield will conduct the auction of the market animals which will include Steers, Hogs, Lambs, and pens of Turkeys and Broilers.
Throughout the year the youth learn about each species, how to raise them, show them, and the body parts and meat cuts. They also learn how to communicate with others, work as a team, and how to have good sportsmanship. The youth in the Gogebic County 4-H Market Animal Project also meet every Monday during the summer to help prepare the fairgrounds for Fair activities by doing maintenance, such as: repainting pens, walls, and the entrance way of the cattle barn, fixing the wash station and auction arena, and many other projects that need to be done to help make the fair a success.
The Auction Ring is Located Behind the Cattle Pavilion. The 4H Auctions starts Saturday at 5:30 PM
