What’s a Premium Sale?
The Washington County Fair offers youth interested in agriculture the opportunity to learn, exhibit, and compete with their 4-H or FFA-sponsored livestock projects. All projects are judged within their respective category and then the best projects participate in the Premium Livestock Auction.
Businesses and individuals who support agriculture education in Washington County are invited to “purchase” the animals. Students keep the animals so they can go on to compete in state and regional fairs. The money donated is given to the “seller” to use for expenses incurred with raising the animal or to help pay for future livestock projects. All projects must be supervised by an FFA Advisor or 4-H Club Leader.
Over 100 livestock exhibitors will be presenting their projects in the sale ring.
