Montgomery County 4-H Auction

The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair held its annual 4-H livestock sale on Friday, August 19th. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers enjoys this opportunity every year to show support for the Montgomery County 4-H program. The 4-H program exists to “provide a supportive setting for boys and girls to mature into competent, caring, and responsible people through volunteerism and the learning of valuable life skills.” The annual auction at the fair follows a week of 4-H’ers having the opportunity to share knowledge, skills, and products through exhibitions and demonstrations. Lamb, steer, and swine that were raised and shown by 4-H’ers are auctioned. Funds help cover costs of raising the animals and allow 4-H’ers to continue raising animals the following year. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers continually purchases animals in the auction to support the 4-H program and the youth involved.
