Livestock Auction Draws Support Online and In Person
July 29, 2020
The tradition of 4-H members walking their sheep, goats or cattle before potential buyers continued this year, although with some noticeable changes.
This year's 4-H Livestock Sale, the key point of 4-H events at the Cheyenne County Fair, was conducted this year virtually and before a crowd of supporters. It was most-notably done without the presence of the club members' animals. Each 4-H member displayed a framed picture of their entry before the video feed and the audience before bids were taken. This year, the Livestock Sale was the only event open to the public. The move was made to be in compliance with Directed Health Measures and Panhandle Public Health Department's requirements. People were also encouraged to stay home if they felt sick and were asked to practice physical distancing.
