The 2020 Fair livestock auction will be held in an online format! 4-H youth have been working hard year round to produce well cared for, quality market auction entries.

Bontrager Real Estate & Auction Service is honored to be assisting Orleans County 4-H with auctioneering services.  

We will post a link to the auction as soon as possible. Our youth will also be sharing photos and videos of the project animals, as well as full view photos on the auction website. This year has been a challenge for all of us and we are very proud of the work these youth have accomplished to still produce quality animals and overcome not having an in person event to share them with bidders.


4-H builds youth who become strong leaders that make a positive difference in their community.  Raising a 4-H market auction animal helps youth develop in character and learn skills that will help them throughout their lives.  Participants in this program learn how to be responsible through daily care of their animal, manage money and keep records, and communicate with the public to market their product.
