The meat bought at next month’s Door County Quality Market Animal Sale tastes a little better once you learn where it comes from. Dozens of local youth projects from the beef, hog, lamb, rabbit, and poultry barns will be shown one final time in the show ring before they are bid on by local residents and businesses. Committee secretary Annie Rabach invites potential buyers to walk through the barns and visit with the youth before they place their bids.
Committee member Krissy Phillips has seen plenty of her kids’ animals get bought at the sale and she is happy that they understand it is all part of the process.
Last year’s sale brought in $83,000 for local youth. The Door County Quality Market Animal Sale takes place during the Door County Fair on August 3rd. Registration begins at 6 p.m. before the sale starts at 7 p.m.
