Press Release Submitted by – Jane Roberti
The Plumas-Sierra County Fair and livestock shows will be July 27th to July 31st at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy, California. Livestock will be shown by our local 4-H, FFA and independent youth from both Plumas and Sierra Counties.
“This will be the first traditional fair in three years for the youth and they are really looking forward to it,” states Megan Neer, Plumas-Sierra Junior Livestock Auction Chairman. “In the past two years, the kids have overcome the challenges of Covid, distance learning, been directly impacted by fire evacuations and some even lost homes due to the catastrophic fire.” “It will be neat to be back at the fairgrounds and having a traditional county fair for our kids.”
The auction sale will start at 9:00 a.m. on July 31st. Plumas Bank is sponsoring a continental breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for the buyers and exhibitors. Plumas County Sheriff’s Association is providing lunches for the buyers.
Profiles of participating youth can be viewed on the Plumas-Sierra Junior Livestock Auction Facebook page. Interested buyers can participate in the livestock sale on Sunday, July 31st and help reward the youth for their hard work in raising various livestock and other animals, including steers, lambs, swine, goats, rabbits, and turkeys.
In addition, there is an option for add-ons for 4-H, FFA and independent exhibitors that are in the sale and will also be available the day of the sale.
