Helping Lane County Youth Ranchers in 4-H and FFA During our 2020 Crisis
Welcome supporters and friends of Lane Youth Ranchers. This site was established to assist in helping the 4-H and FFA student livestock producers sell 2020 markets animals to our local community. The cancelation of a regular live auction has impacted the ability to offer youth projects for sale at the traditional summer event. This year the Lane County Youth Auction is providing assistance in helping our youth connect with community buyers directly and also creating a Cooperative fund to help offset significantly reduced market prices and sponsorships.
Here is a BONUS way to help while supporting FFA & 4-H youth: consider donating the animal you purchase to FOOD for Lane County, so it can be used to provide valuable protein items for the food bank to distribute. Because of economic hardships due to COVD-19, many families are worrying about hunger for the first time. For others, existing food insecurity is being magnified. The thoughtful donation of your auction purchase will support the hard work of our future farmers and ranchers and build food security for families living here. Truly a win-win for our community. Thank you!
