Hey Bidder Bidder: Plumas-Sierra Junior Livestock Auction on Sunday July 31st
The Plumas-Sierra County Fair livestock shows will be July 27-31 at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy. Livestock will be shown by local 4-H, FFA and independent youth from both Plumas and Sierra counties.
“This will be the first traditional fair in three years for the youth and they are really looking forward to it,” said Megan Neer, Plumas-Sierra Junior Livestock Auction Chairman. “In the past two years, the kids have overcome the challenges of Covid, distance learning, been directly impacted by fire evacuations and some even lost homes due to the catastrophic fire. It will be neat to be back at the fairgrounds and having a traditional county fair for our kids.”
The auction sale will start at 9 a.m. on July 31. Plumas Bank is sponsoring a continental breakfast from 7:30 to 9 a.m. for the buyers and exhibitors. Plumas County Sheriff’s Association is providing lunches for the buyers.
Profiles of participating youth can be viewed on the Plumas-Sierra Junior Livestock Auction Facebook page. Interested buyers can participate in the livestock sale on Sunday, July 31 and help reward the youth for their hard work in raising various livestock and other animals, including steers, lambs, swine, goats, rabbits, and turkeys.
In addition, there is an option for add-ons for 4-H, FFA and independent exhibitors that are in the sale and will also be available the day of the sale.
