MONROE - Gross sales from the Green County Fair's 4-H and FFA meat auctions Saturday, July 20, were up about $30,000 from 2012, according to Mark Mayer, the ag agent for the University of Wisconsin Extension for Green County. "All of the average per-pound prices for the large animals were up substantially from last year, and all the average price/pound paid for large animals were record highs," Mayer said in an email Sunday. For kids participating in the 39th annual event, the payout is significant.
