Small Animal Sale

The Small Animal Sale on July 11, 2020 is CANCELLED!


The Small Animal Sale Project is an educational experience that allows project members to raise market animals from start to finish. In the months leading up to the fair, project members learn about meat  production, animal nutrition, showmanship and herdsmanship. The Small Animal Sale closes the loop at the end of the project and teaches members the value of small animals in today’s market. Small animals include poultry, rabbits and goats.
