ROCKSPRINGS — It is not just buying an animal, it’s investing in the youth, explained Auctioneer Dean L. Blackburn before Saturday’s Meigs County Fair Livestock Sale.

Buyers did just that, spending thousands on animals from cattle to chickens, hogs, rabbits, lambs and goats.

In addition to the winning bidders, others “bumped” the purchase prices, giving the youth more for their hard work on their projects.

Purchase prices and buyers, not including bumps (listed separately at the end), were as follows:
