LIvestock Exhibitors

In order to make the annual Youth Livestock Auction a success, all 4H livestock exhibitors are asked to invite buyers to attend the auction. Buyers include individuals, groups, and local businesses. We encourage every exhibitor to reach out to at least 4 potential buyers before the start of the fair.

NEW IN 2020! We’re celebrating our 2020 buyers in a big way. In order to receive your sale check after the fair, please follow these steps:

  • Pick up your buyer plaque and photo at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 25 between 6pm and 8pm when you drop off your animal for load-out
  • Deliver your buyer plaque and photo in person
  • Take a photo of you with your buyer, and your buyer plaque and photo (preferably in front of your buyer's business)
  • Submit your photo digitally to the Arapahoe County Youth Livestock Auction Committee; include your buyer's name(s), business or organization name, and social media handle

The Arapahoe Youth Livestock Committee will share all of the exhibitor/buyer photos on our Facebook page to show our appreciation to all of the buyers supporting our 4H livestock exhibitors.
