Twenty-six Boyle County youths will sell animals they have cared for during the past year at the fifth annual Investment in Youth Livestock Sale at 7 p.m. Sept. 4 at Boyle County Stockyards.
All of the animals have won prizes at local and district fairs and at the Kentucky State Fair, said Jerry Little, county extension agricultural agent.
He said the 42 animals to be sold - 19 lambs, 12 goats, seven steers and four hogs - reflect an increase of nine over the sale last year.
"We've got a good selection of animals this year," said Ray Graves, chairman of the sale committee.
He said a representative from the state Department of Agriculture in Frankfort will be on hand prior to the sale to show the exhibitors how to grade their animals.
