Ephrata Fair Agricultrural Contests

Ephrata Fair Youth Livestock Sale

Thursday 6:00 p.m. • Tent City, Grater Memorial Park

Local 4-H and FFA members who have been raising a variety of livestock including swine, beef, goats, lambs, rabbits, and dairy beef, would greatly appreciate your support at their annual sale. The young people have put much time and effort into raising and caring for these quality animals.

This is a great way to support our local 4-H and FFA youth and the future of agriculture! If you would like to support these youth but do not wish to take possession of the animal, a buy back price will be offered for all species. If you cannot be at the sale, we would be happy to see that a buyer is present to represent you. Please contact Jen Oberholtzer, Chairman, at (717) 733-4451 ext 1090.

Buyers of Champions and Reserve Champions will have their photos taken for newspaper coverage.
