The Rogers County Premium Auction will end a week of activities during the 107th annual Rogers County Fair.
The auction provides the community with a way to support 4-H & FFA students who successfully exhibited livestock in the Rogers County Fair and qualified for the honor of selling in the auction. The animals don’t change ownership.
The auction format provides a means for the community to “buy” or “add-on” to the bidding for each student. When community members generously support students through the Premium Auction, it enables these students to continue with future animal projects, add to their college funds, and most importantly, explore their future in agriculture. There really is no substitute for the hands-on supervised learning experience a 4-H or FFA livestock project provides to students interested in agriculture.
Here’s a list of events for Monday evening:
• Meet the Students begins at 5:00 pm
• Buyers Dinner 5:30 - 6:30 pm
• Presentation of Scholarships 6:00 pm
• Presentation of Awards 6:15 pm
• The Livestock Premium Auction 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Meet the Students provides an opportunity to visit with all 89 exhibitors and their animals included in the sale. Each of the exhibitors and animals who qualifies for the sale will be present for this special night celebrating their hard work and success.
The bidding will be fast paced. The winning bidder on each animal will be announced and given special recognition. Add-on donations are another option to provide support to our students. Add-ons can be given in any amount large or small. Add-ons may be given at the sale or by email for those unable to attend in person.
If you would like to receive a sale list by email on Sunday evening before the sale, please send an email with your contact information to Jerri Guilfoyle at firstname.lastname@example.org
