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.
