CENTRAL POINT, Ore.--- 4-H and FFA members are excited to be back in person at the Jackson County Fair. This comes after last year was done virtually due to the pandemic.
10 year old Jack Leonardo is a first year 4-H member and watched his older brother go through the fair week last year online.
"Last year they had to take videos and send them in and all that," Leonardo said. "Then sell them online and people would have to bid, so that got complicated."
This year, Leonardo has his own cow at the fair for his 4-H project. He says he is thankful his first year at fair is back to in person.
The steer auction will be held on Saturday, July 17th at 7 PM. The last auction will be the goats on Sunday, September 19th at 2 PM. There will be three ways to bid this year; live, online, or order buyer.
