Huntandjeep,

Have you checked what prices people are getting at the Toppenish Livestock Saturday sale?  I am taking my daughter down tomorrow to drop off her two West Valley Fair Goats.  I am hoping she gets close to half of what she would have gotten if the fair wasn't canceled.  She has two more that are going in August because of the Yakima Fair getting canceled.  At least that fair setup a special date and is still allowing the kids to receive add ons.

I haven't , actually forgot about the Toppenish sale . Supposedly a guy is buying them tomorrow for what she has into them so far . If that falls through I will have to look into that .

Throwing sticks curious what breed of lamb it was that you bought? If you don't mind.

Sure, I had to look it up, and also I paid hanging weight not hoof weight, so it was around 55#. Not cheap, but also not what we eat every day. I was / is a Katahdin hair sheep.
They are less gamey from what I understand, it is good stuff, pretty mild.

Vast differences around the state in support for show animals.  You might check out what Grant county is doing and many fairs have simply ran away leaving all those projects hanging. Help where you can. 
That middle carcass has some leg and loin, not so much on the other two.

Clark County fair is doing online auction for the youth around here. Hopefully everyone was aware and got signed up before the deadline.

I hate to say but weíve heard nothing from Snohomish county or the Evergreen Youth Livestock show about trying to do something for the kids who raised animals this year. Fair is cancelled. See ya next year. Sorry, kids! Thatís about it.
