Friends of the Junior Fair Livestock auction taking donations

| September 9, 2021


The Friends of the Coshocton County Junior Fair Livestock Auction was formed in 2019 as a fundraising entity. The goal of the group is to support the hard work of the 4-H and FFA youth showing and selling their livestock projects by establishing a pool of funds that will increase the overall sales at the auction.

In 2020 when the auction was virtual only, due to the coronavirus restrictions, the group raised more than $11,000 and was able to purchase or add-on to the price of more than 100 sellers. The funds were used to support the sale of every type of species sold in the auction. Dozens of thank you cards were received from the kids, demonstrating the appreciation the youth have for this group’s support.

This year the junior fair sale will return to its traditional live, in-person, auction on Thursday, Oct. 7. There is expected to be approximately 300 projects in this year’s sale rings. The funds raised by the Friends of the Coshocton County Junior Fair Livestock Auction will be used to purchase animal projects, or add-on to the purchase price of projects that are sold at below average levels for the class.

This fund enables individuals, businesses, and organizations to show their support for this group of hardworking Coshocton County youth even if they are unable to attend the auction in person. Questions can be directed to Sally Ellis at 740-545-6002 or 740-202-3429 or Carol Hardrosky at 740-610-3586. Contributions may be sent to: Friends of the Coshocton County Junior Fair Livestock Auction, Attn: Carol Hadrosky, 603 S. 13th St., Coshocton, OH 43812. Monetary donations need to be received by Thursday, Sept. 30.
