4-H members in grades 5-12 in a meat animal project (beef, goat, poultry, rabbit, sheep, and/or swine) may choose to sell their market animal at the Coos County Fair by participating in the Coos County Auction Animal program (also known as the Coos Youth Auction).
The Coos Youth Auction is one of the best sales in the state. It’s conducted by the Coos Youth Auction Committee, Inc., a non-profit organization which manages the promotion and sale of animals for 4-H and FFA members in Coos County. The committee works to continue to improve the quality of the product the 4-H and FFA members present to the buyers by educating members regarding animal selection and following industry standards.
To participate in the Youth Auction, 4-H members must meet requirements and deadlines in addition to those for their 4-H project. For detailed information, see the Coos Youth Auction Handbook (PDF). You may also skip directly to the following sections of the handbook:
