Sale of champions set for Bureau County 4-H Fair

The 4-H Sale of Champions Committee will again sponsor the annual 4-H Sale of Champions at this year’s 2021 Bureau County 4-H Fair set for July 15-17.

The Champion and Reserve Champion of the following market divisions - beef, swine, sheep, waterfowl, rabbits, and poultry will be featured within the sale. In addition, each 4-H member exhibiting a market livestock project may have an animal participate in the Sale of Champions.

Owners of the livestock, 4-H youth, will have the option of participating. At the discretion of the youth and the donors, it may be decided to allow the 4-H’er to maintain possession of the participating animal so that it can be used in other shows for the remainder of the show season.

Individuals and businesses are encouraged to donate to the Sale of Champions Committee to support the 4-H’ers with both their current and future projects. Donations may be sent to the U of I Extension Office, c/o Sale of Champions Committee, 850 Thompson St., Princeton, IL 61356.
