MADERA -  Where can you buy a goat for $33 a pound? The Madera Fair Junior Livestock Auction brought out the agriculture community to support the kids of the FFA and 4H and the community did not disappoint.

The school kids sold their animal projects and some collected belt buckles for grand champions and showmanship. Last year the fair set a record for the amount of money raised to support these projects. This years numbers are not available yet. If you missed the auction you can still come out and place bump bids to help out.
