2022 State Fair Livestock Sale


Thanks to Colorado’s electric cooperatives, 4-H and FFA kids selling their prize-winning animals at the Colorado State Fair Livestock Sale in late August received a total of $491,000 from buyers. This year’s Grand Champion Market Beef, raised by Stetson Gabel of Galerton in Weld County, sold for $58,000.

Colorado’s electric co-ops have sponsored the annual Junior Livestock Sale for the last 18 years. The co-ops’ financial support makes the sale possible, and the co-ops work together to make the sale special for participants. This includes presenting each participant with a goodie bag filled with snacks and a cap honoring them as sale participants.
