Fair

Teton County 4-H has released information about the annual livestock auction at the county fair, showing the young people raised a total of $417,882 from the sale.  The highest prices paid in the three livestock catagories were $12,484 for a beef, $3900 for a lamb and $5500 for a swine.  Altogether, the beef cattle sold brought an average of $7.11 per pound, swine brought an average of $10.25 per pound, and sheep brought an average of $16.70 per pound.  Money raised through the sale is used by the young people to help defray the cost of raising their animals, and often times the profits are set aside to help with a college fund.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
