The Junior Livestock Auction supports Ag educational programs throughout Kern County. Each purchase directly finances and supports individual youth participants who are working to become future agriculture and community leaders.
As a buyer, you help these young participants to finance future animal projects as well as their overall agricultural, general education, and life experiences. Additionally, you receive high-quality, locally sourced food for you and your family to enjoy.
Each youth participant spends 3-9 months and countless hours raising and caring for their livestock projects. Learning responsibility and dedication, as well as animal care and entrepreneurship, will benefit them far into their future
