Dairy Youth Recognition Auction
August 18, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
The Dodge County Dairy Youth participating in the dairy project will again be recognized for their hard work at the 2019 Dodge County Dairy Youth Recognition Auction. The auction will be held on Sunday, August 18th at the Dodge County Fair in the Farm Progress Arena. The pre-sale luncheon begins promptly at 10:30 a.m., followed by the auction at 11:30 a.m.
A maximum of 16 Dodge County Junior Dairy Show participants will be represented in the auction. To qualify, the youth must have won at least one of 15 classes at the 2018 Dodge County Fair. The 16th lot at the 2019 auction will be filled by a random drawing from all dairy youth exhibitors who have turned in an educational card of at least 7 points.
Live animals will NOT be sold, but rather a symbol will be offered of the sale participant’s achievements. The auction items for the 2018 sale is a custom-made clock.
All the money generated through the Dairy Youth Recognition Auction is carefully allocated to help as many 4-H, FFA and junior breed organizations in the Dodge County Dairy Project as possible. Scholarships are also awarded to post-high school students who attend two and four-year degree programs. Recipients of this year’s scholarships will be announced at the Dodge County Fair, just prior to the 2018 auction.
The list of activities receiving financial support is growing yearly and includes field trips, dairy grants to purchase a dairy animal, educational literature, Junior State Fair exhibits, Dairy Judging, Badger Dairy Camp and Dairy Bowl.
Anyone interested in Dodge County Dairy Youth is qualified and encouraged to participate as a bidder at the Recognition Auction. Bidders will be provided with free gate admission for Sunday and a pre-auction lunch. Please RSVP to the Dodge County UW-Extension Office, 920-386-3790 so we may better serve you.
