Ag Boosters Program
In 2018, the Linn County Youth Livestock Auction (LCYLA) committee created a new program, called the LCYLA Ag Boosters. The purpose of the booster program is to support 4-H and FFA youth at the Linn County Fair and enable businesses and individuals who otherwise might not purchase an animal outright, an opportunity to be a part of the auction. By pooling funds together, the Ag Boosters are able to purchase animals at the fair and support a “floor” price for all of the youth participating in the auction.
We would like to personally invite you to become a member of the 2019 LCYLA Ag Boosters! While donations in any amount are graciously accepted, a donation of $250 or more provides a multitude of benefits including; signage at the auction, recognition in the sale catalog, your name on the “buyer’s fence” (on display year round at the fairgrounds), name posted on the LCYLA website and two tickets to our Thank You dinner held in October.
LCYLA is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible (ID #26-3929297).
Year after year, there has been tremendous growth in the number of 4-H and FFA members participating in market projects. Auction success is dependent upon bringing community and youth together. Not only is the sale of a livestock project a reward for the hard work and dedication put into raising an animal, but these monies are used to offset the costs of future projects and are saved for college education. The skills obtained while raising livestock will also carry over into other aspects of life, developing leadership, responsibility, sportsmanship, teamwork, community service and a positive attitude in our youth. It is imperative that we continue to support the program.
We hope you will consider becoming a member of the 2019 LCYLA Ag Boosters. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any of the committee members listed below. We are happy to pick up your donation in person, or it can be mailed to the Linn County Extension Office, Attn: LCYLA, 33630 Mcfarland Road, Tangent, OR 97389.
Thank you for supporting the 4-H and FFA youth in Linn County!
