The 77th annual 4-H and FFA Livestock Auction brought record sales for the youngsters who worked hard to prepare their animals for the final day of the Baker County Fair at Baker City.

“It’s the highest total auction we’ve ever had,” said Randy Guyer, who’s been associated with the sale since 1975, but began keeping records seri- ously in 1981.

Total sales for the 129 animals sold at this year’s Aug. 9 auc-
tion were at about $245,000 as of Wednesday. That doesn’t include the “add-on money” from people who didn’t make it to the sale — but who want to contribute — that is still

coming in, said Jayne Kellar, the sale committee’s co-treasurer with Terri Siddoway. Kellar also is the office manager for the Baker County Extension Service.

Guyer, who’s also a sale committee member, said the sale total could go as high as $250,000 once everything is accounted for.

The second highest auction total was collected during the 2012 fair when the sale brought in $228,107 for 138 animals, Guyer said.

Last year’s sale, at which 144 ani- mals were sold, earned $190,434.   For the full story, see Friday's print edition of the Baker City Herald.
