Meat Products Auction raises nearly $81,000

Aug. 8, 2013 | 0 comments

WEST ALLIS

Gov. Walker worked the crowd from the stage, encouraging bidders to increase their bids, and contributed to a sale that raised $80,988 for nearly 350,000 Wisconsin 4-H youth and youth programs at this year’s Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Products Auction.

The auction’s proceeds support Wisconsin 4-H activities including 4-H conferences, teaching materials and workshops, and overall development of 4-H youth.

The auction was held Aug. 6 at Wisconsin State Fair Park.

Besides the 4-H youth, the star of the evening was Haen Meat Packing, a meat processor from Kaukauna, named the 2013 Best in Show. Haen Meat Packing, who earned the honor for their Bone-in Ham, competed against over 100 entries for the coveted title.

The Best in Show bone-in ham sold for $12,000 to a consortium formed by Country Fresh Meats, Egg Innovations, Hartmann Sand and Gravel, Wisconsin State Fair Park Board and UW-Extension.

Haen Meat Packing was on the auction block five other times during the evening earning Grand Champion and Reserve Champion awards for several of their products.

Auctioneers Bob Johnson and Gary Finley, emcee Bob Meyer and Gov. Walker not only sold each Grand Champion and Reserve Champion entries from the Wisconsin State Fair Meat Products Contest but also several Wisconsin-themed packages.

A special youth moment where businesses and individuals could pledge $350 for Wisconsin 4-H Youth Development Programs raised $6,650 and a collectable model truck signed by Gov. Walker, Alice in Dairyland, Kristin Olson and Wisconsin Fairest of the Fair, Steffani Koch raised $1,000 and was sold to Merwin Farms.

The auction is a partnership of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, Wisconsin Association of Meat Processors (WAMP) and Wisconsin State Fair and is sponsored by Schenck, SC.

Other auction sponsors included: Holstein World Productions, Image Studios and Rupena’s Fine Foods.

Based in Madison, the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation provides essential funding for 4-H programs throughout Wisconsin.

By partnering with individuals, corporations and foundations, the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation supports nearly 350,000 youth who take part in various 4-H leadership, development and community-building activities throughout the state.
