Lambs, steers, goats and rabbits, raised by 4-H Club in the Shuswap and throughout the province, are going to “virtual” auction.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for 2020, 4-H club members are putting their projects up for auction through a virtual sale during the BC Agricultural Expo. The auction opens at noon on Thursday, Sept. 24, and an interval close runs from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26.
Bidding is being held at farmgatetimedauctions.ca, and new bidders are required to create an account.
Shuswap 4-H club member Kayleigh Stockbruegger’s has two of her projects up for auction, a lamb named Olaf and another named Nacho Cheese. Kayleigh is in her second year with the Shuswap 4-H Club and has enjoyed learning to take care of her animals and watching them grow.
By purchasing Olaf, Nacho Cheese or any of the other 4-H Club member projects, buyers are supporting club members and the 4-H program, which aims to promote leadership and citizenship among its members while supporting the future of agriculture in B.C.
