Goats, sheep, cows and pigs were all a part of The Montgomery County 4-H Fair Cattle Auction. The auction allowed 4-H members of all ages to earn some money by auctioning off their show animals.
Many of the 10-year members saw an encouraging end to their part of the auction. 17 10-year members participated in the auction. The highest earnings of the group went to Grace Lough who sold her pig for $3,700.
Also participating in the auction was Miss Montgomery County Fair Queen, Lauren McClaskey, who put her pig up on the block. McClaskey found an easy $450.
Adding to the auction was a kiss from the queen that was auctioned off to raise a small monetary scholarship for the 2016 queen. 2014 queen, Darian Stewart, was able to bring the tradition back. The kiss brought in $500 for the 2016 Montgomery County Fair Queen. “I was able to receive the scholarship, so I want to be able to pass it on,” said McClaskey.
