TIMONIUM, Md. - The Maryland State Fair livestock sale was held for 4-H/FFA youth in the state.
The sale was the culmination of a year's worth of hard work and competition by 4-H/FFA youth. Each youth received the proceeds raised from the sale of their livestock to invest in their education or a new livestock project.
"This is an excellent opportunity for the youth. They have invested a lot of time and money in their livestock in order to prepare them for competition and auction," said State Fair 4-H Director Kathy Gordon. "It teaches them responsibility for their animals, how to make wise management decisions, and provides the financial support and encouragement necessary to meet future goals."
Results of the lifestock sale:
o Cooper Bounds, of Taneytown, Md., in Carroll County, sold his 87-pound Grand Champion Market Goat to The Mill of Belair for $3.44 per pound ($300).
