The 2014 Northeast Youth Livestock Show will once again bring livestock, education and business values to Wisconsin's youth at the Brown County Fairgrounds Sept. 6-8, with weekend activities leading up to the livestock auction starting Monday, Sept. 8 at 9:30 a.m.
The Northeast Youth Livestock Show is free to attend and provides the community with locally raised cuts of meat at a significant value through an open livestock auction. Participants learn how to responsibly raise a market-ready animal — a process that instills youth with important life and business values.
For community members wishing to support the cause by purchasing livestock but are unable to attend the auction, the Northeast Youth Livestock Show now offers online ordering with a variety of different meat packages to choose from. These packages include everything from a hindquarter or half beef option to a 25-pound pork package. Placing an order is easy at NEYLSlivestock.com/meat-packages. Two weeks after the show, packages will be ready for pickup at select locations.
As in previous years, onsite staff members will also be available on the day of the auction to help bidders purchase and "dress" any auctioned animal. After the final bid, the animal will not be seen again until the packaged meat is ready for pickup. There is also a resale process for those who would like to support the cause but do not want to have the animal processed.
Other events include the livestock weigh-in on Saturday, Sept. 6 at 7:30 a.m. and the livestock showmanship event on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 8:30 a.m. All animals will become available for sale through auction bidding on Monday, Sept. 8 at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude with the sale of the Northeast Youth Livestock Show's grand and reserve champions at noon.
