is the world's largest youth organization led
by youth, he added.
There are numerous activities in which the
youth may participate.
These include: beef, sheep, and swine
divisions in livestock; and arts, clothing,
foods, collections, and creative hobbies in
arts and crafts.
To be eligible, the youth must be enrolled in
a Jack County public school and be an active
member of Jack County 4-H or FFA. The
exhibitor must have personally fed and cared
for his animal under adult supervision this
school year or have prepared the art or craft
since last year's fair.
In 1982, the Youth Fair Sales topped all
previous records with $68,626.56 in total
receipts. An explanation of the bidding
process in the livestock sale is provided
First, a competitive market price is placed
for the base or "floor" price by a meat packer.
The premium is the bid above the floor price.
For instance the cost of steer may be as
Floor price set: 60<f per pound.
Steer weight: 1,000 pounds.
Top auction bid: $1.00 per pound.
Sale of animal would be:
x LOO (603 floor # 40<t premium)
The bidder may elect to either buy the steer
for the full price of $1,000.00 and keep the
animal or the bidder may elect to pay only the
premium amount of $400.00 (40<F per pound x
1,000 pounds). In the latter case the meat
packer pays the floor price of $600.00.
Either way, the youth receives $1,000.00 for
A youth may have only two animals in
each class. Only one animal in each class
may be sold in the premium auction sale.
However, he or she may elect to send a second
animal in a class to the meat packer for the
