BLACKFOOT â€” The 4-H Market Sale on Wednesday brought the 2013 edition of the Bingham County 4-H Fair to a close.
A total of 216 animals were auctioned. The grand champion and reserve grand champion of goats, rabbits, swine, sheep and beef were auctioned at the top of the sale.
These top 10 animals brought $10,425 to their owners.
The Stoddard Family Endowment hog was sold and resold seven times before the winning bidder took it home. Money raised from the endowment hog goes directly back into 4-H for scholarships. Bidders gave $1,625 to this scholarship fund.
