The Christian County Fair kicks off this week, which means local 4-H kids are busy showing off the various projects and livestock they've been working on and raising over the past year. For those who raise livestock as a 4-H project, they have the chance to auction off those animals during the 4-H livestock auction, taking place on Thursday.
Hayden Baker is president of the Christian County 4-H Clover Club, and assists with the auction. She says she enjoys watching the joy the kids have as they participate in the auction.
The livestock auction is the culmination of the work the 4-H kids have put in, and provides an opportunity to be rewarded financially for the work they've put in.
The Christian County 4-H Livestock auction takes place at 6pm on Thursday, July 27th at the Livestock building on the west end of the Christian County Fairgrounds.
