REgister to Buy

Thank you for your interest in purchasing animals or add-ons at the 2021 Arapahoe County Youth Livestock Auction! The Youth Livestock Auction is a longstanding tradition at the Arapahoe County Fair. This annual event showcases the hard work of our county’s 4H livestock exhibitors.

We invite individuals, groups, and businesses to bid on locally raised lambs, hogs, goats, poultry, rabbits and cattle. All proceeds go directly to the individual 4H exhibitors.

4H exhibitors follow quality assurance practices in nutrition, health, and care of their livestock. The animals are judged at the fair by experienced livestock evaluators. Animals that meet established market quality standards may be auctioned at the Youth Livestock Auction.

The Youth Livestock Auction is an independent 501(c)3 and your purchases and add-ons may be tax-deductible.

How to Buy a 4H Animal at Auction

BUYING AN ANIMAL AT AUCTION

When you purchase an animal through the Arapahoe County Youth Livestock Auction, you are not only supporting our 4H youth, you also get to fill your freezer with premium meat.

You have three options for the animals you purchase. Just let us know which option you prefer after you place your winning bid.

Home

If you have a preferred butcher and have secured a processing date, choose the Home option. You will be responsible for transporting the animals you've purchased to your selected butcher.

Locker

Choose one of our two local butchers to process your meat - Your Choice Meats in Wiggins or Deer Trail Custom Cuts. We'll transport your animals to the butcher immediately after the sale. You are responsible for processing fees and picking up your meat.​

Buy-Back

If you are unable or would prefer not to process the animal, choose the Buy-Back option. You'll pay the difference between market price and your winning bid.
