Livestock auction to support Clallam youth

SEQUIM — Young entrepreneurs will auction off a variety of livestock at the Clallam County Junior Livestock Auction at 2 p.m. Aug. 6, at the Sequim Prairie Grange, 290 MacLeay Road.

Hogs, lambs, steers and goats are sold by the pound while turkeys and rabbits are sold per animal, and meat chickens are sold in a pen of three.

All livestock entered into the sale must meet a strict set of rules that are designed to ensure overall quality and health, auction organizers said.

Bidders can sign up prior to the auction and also on the day of the sale. There is an option for proxy bidding if bidders are unable to attend the live auction.

This is a non-terminal sale, organizers note: buyers have the option of picking up the live animal or having it processed per the buyer’s instructions. While the auction coordinates the processing of the livestock, all harvesting, cutting, wrapping and curing/smoking of the meat is paid for separately by the buyer.

Exhibitors will have animal showings on Aug. 4-5, at the Sequim Prairie Grange, with fitting and showing classes and market animal type classes for chickens, turkey and rabbit on Aug. 4, and the same for beef, sheep, swine and goats on Aug. 5.

The Clallam County Junior Livestock Auction is a nonprofit organization and offers additional options for community members to support local youth engaged in agricultural activities such as add-on project donations.
