The 2021 Youth Livestock Sale shattered last year’s sale numbers, setting a new record of more than $600,000 raised for local youth and nonprofits, the Campbell County Fair (CCF) announced Monday.

Animals produced by local 4-H and Future Farmers of America members were up for bid Sunday afternoon at the Cam-Plex Central Pavilion.

Businesses and citizens alike showed up at the sale to support hardworking kids, some keeping the animals and others making charitable donations to local nonprofits, according to CCF Manager Liz Edwards.

“We are always blown away by the level of support we receive from our community at the sale,” Edwards said in a statement, adding that the attendance was a pleasant surprise given the difficulties in the local economy.

This year, CCF announced, 261 lots were sold for a total of $609,619.45.

Beef claimed the top spot in terms of earnings with 49 lots selling for a total of $270, 104. The highest-selling cow was raised by Joel Klaassen, which sold for $11, 017
