Youth exhibitors claim auction prizes
Brodheads Sarah Strathman, 19, sells one of her pigs at the Livestock Auction on Saturday at the Green County Fair. This was Strathmans last year being able to show pigs with 4-H. Its kinda sad, Strathman said. "This is one of my favorite things to do." To order either photo, click here. (Times photo: Marissa Weiher)
MONROE - Auctioneers rapidly fired off numbers and names while youth participants tried their best to show the best side of their animals, whether they were feathered, furry or hoofed during the Green County Fair FFA and 4-H auctions Saturday. In the stock pavilion of the fairgrounds, the Fur and Feather auction began at 10 a.m. with poultry and rabbits held on display. Large fans blew dusty, hot air around the bleachers where buyers sat anticipating the perfect animal to bid on while others stood in between seeking the same.
