    Youth Market Lamb Auction

    The annual Youth Market Lamb Auction was held at the Piscataquis Valley Fair Friday evening, August 25. This is the culmination of many months of work by the youth who learned how to care for and show their animals.

    The Grand Champion Lamb was raised by Emily Crocker of Charleston. A trophy was given in the memory of Robert "Bob" Crocker by Cindy Crocker Storer and family. The successful bidder for this animal was New England Feeds. The Reserve Champion Lamb was raised by Megan Crocker of Charleston and a trophy was donated by Ivanhoe Farm of Charleston. The successful bidder was the Penobscot County 4-H Sheep and Market Lamb Club. The Honorable Mention Lambs were raised by Whitney Winslow of Windham and Rob Crocker of Charleston and the successful bidders Jean Winslow of Windham, Gilrock Farm of Sangerville and Jay Hanson of Winslow. The top price received was $3.05 per pound with an average price of $1.80 per pound. Two lambs purchased by the Penobscot County 4-H Sheep and Market Lamb Club with donations from several businesses in the central Maine area were donated to the Manna Soup Kitchen in Bangor to benefit the needy.

    Other youth who participated in the auction include: Chelsey Merrill of North Yarmouth, Amanda Crocker of Charleston and Marjorie Hardy of Farmington. Bidders for these lambs included: New England Feed, Larry MacDonald of Greenville and Penobscot County 4-H Sheep and Market Lamb Club.

    Robbie Crocker won the Senior Showmanship Award and Marjorie Hardy won the Junior Showmanship Award.

    The following people made this auction possible: Cindy and Ron Storer of Charleston for planning and coordinating the auction; Dave Averill of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Resources for judging and bringing the scales to the fairgrounds to weigh the lambs; Jay Hanscom for serving as our auctioneer, the Piscataquis Valley Fair Association for providing the opportunity to conduct the auction; and the buyers who made this a successful auction.

    If you are interested in participating in the Youth Livestock Auction next year, please contact Cindy and Ron Storer, phone 285-3102.
