Young people sell their animals at auction Aug. 19.

Union — The 6th Annual Union Fair Youth Market Auction will take place Monday, Aug. 19, at 6:30 p.m., with a buyers reception at 6 at the Union Fairgrounds. Ten young people from around the state will bring steers, lambs, meat birds and laying hens to the live auction.

The youth have learned not only how to feed and show their animals, but also time management, responsibility and how to market their animals. For many this is their summer job, while for others they are holding down a summer job as well as raising their animals. Many will use the money from their projects to invest in their next project or save for their future education.

The auction is preceded by the market show, Sunday, Aug. 18, at 4 p.m. This is a chance for potential buyers to see the animals and hear what the judge has to say about them.

Purchased animals will be transported to the processor of the purchaser's choice. Laying hens will be available to go home with buyers Monday night.

For more information, call 691-3887.
