2020 Fair Updates from The Junior Livestock Sale Committee

Dear Weld County 4H’ers and Families:

We hope that you’ve had a great summer up to this point and you’re getting excited for the 2020 Weld County Fair. As a result of continued communications with the Board of County Commissioners and the Fair Board regarding the 2020 sale, there have been some changes made to our initial sale plan. Please understand the fluid nature of the COVID-19 restrictions, those impacts on the planning process and the genuine intention of the Fair Board and the Jr. Livestock Sale Committee to ensure the best possible sale for you. This letter is intended to outline the plan for the 2020 sale as well as highlight the key changes from previously communicated requirements.

THE GREAT NEWS: 2020 Junior LIVESTOCK SALE WILL HAPPEN AS NORMAL!

  • Sale will be held Monday, August 3rd, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. in the Event Center at Island Grove.

  • ALL 245 exhibitors that qualify for the sale will sell their animals LIVE.

  • THERE IS NO NEED TO SUBMIT UP TO 3 PICTURES OF YOU AND YOUR POTENTIAL SALE ANIMAL AS PREVIOUSLY COMMUNICATED.

  • There will be a Buyer Appreciation meal served for buyers only as we are following strict food service guidelines in the meal room.
