Special 4-H beef sale at Erin Fall Fair Oct. 9

This year several members of the Erin 4-H Beef Club participated in an additional club learning more about feeder animals.

Through the course of sev­eral months, feed type, cost, and intake as well as weight gain was measured. That en­ab­led members in the feeder club to monitor costs and learn about the rewards (or loss) of selling the animal in the diff­erent avenues available.

Erin Fall Fair goers will have the opportunity to pur­chase some of the meat from different animals at the auction being held in the exhibits hall Friday evening of the fair.

McArthur-Bessey Auction Services will conduct the event on behalf of the 4-H members. Offered at auction that evening will be several frozen 25 pound boxes of mixed meat to take home that night.

Come and enjoy the fair events that evening, support 4-H members, and obtain some of the best locally raised beef.   

Support will be appreciated by the 4-H members and lead­ers. Auction will be held on Oct. 9 at approximately 7pm during the Ambassador com­petition.
