Welcome to the Alameda County Fair Junior Livestock Auction website! This website exists to help answer questions and promote our annual Junior Livestock Auction, showcasing our local 4-H and FFA livestock exhibitors, and their market animal projects.
The Junior Livestock Auction is traditionally held on the last day of the Alameda County Fair. FFA and 4H members will be busy all year - starting in the Fall - preparing to exhibit their animals at the fair.
In addition to regular project meetings and field days, they will invest hundreds of hours over the next year with daily feeding, cleaning and handling of the project animals, in order to prepare them for the annual fair. At the fair, animals are judged by professional livestock evaluators, and those that meet established market quality standards will be auctioned at the next Junior Livestock Auction.
These youth are the leaders of tomorrow. The FFA and 4H programs are designed to teach their members valuable leadership skills that will benefit them in any career they may choose. The animal projects teach them the meaning of responsibility, hard work and the basics of running a small business.
Since one of the goals of these projects is to make a profit we encourage everyone to come to the auction and make a purchase to help our young people meet their goals and reward them for all of their hard work and commitment to becoming the leaders of tomorrow
