4-H Show and Sale well supported

When people buy a 4-H animal they know they are getting the best of the best.

When people buy a 4-H animal they know they are getting the best of the best.

And they are often very generous because they know they are supporting the skills of our future farmers and ranchers.

One amazing example of this generosity came in the form of a lovely black turkey this year that was raised by Big Lake 4-H club member Brenda Van Wyck.

The turkey weighed in at 24 pounds and sold for $28 per pound, says Marty Lachance, who had to double check her figures to make sure she got it right for this incredulous Tribune/Weekend Advisor reporter.

Yes that is a $672 turkey for someone’s special dinner or pet?

The average price paid for the 27 beef sold this year was $4.41 per pound.

The average price paid for the 48 swine sold this year was $5.05 per pound.

The average price for market lambs was $5.28 per pound.

The garden sold by Alan Stafford sold for $350.

A lot of baking and vegetables sold for $275.

A peach pie sold for $300.

In the small engines class a weed eater sold for $200 and a rebuilt ATV sold for $1,200.
