Junior Livestock Sale Honors Colorado’s 4-H & FFA Youth
Over $10 Million Raised for Ag Youth in 36 Years
PUEBLO, Colo. – The 54thColorado’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Junior Livestock Sale at the Colorado State Fair accumulated approximately $502,525 from generous buyers supporting the state’s agricultural youth.
“For over 50 years, the Colorado State Fair Junior Livestock Sale has been the preeminent event for Colorado’s 4-H and FFA youth and this sale is a reflection of their hard work,” said State Fair General Manager Sarah Cummings. “We would like to thank and recognize the generous bidders who make this experience possible for Colorado’s agricultural youth. Without their patronage the sale could not be as successful as it has become.”
The Colorado’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Junior Livestock Sale is instrumental in supporting the future of Colorado’s agribusiness as it demonstrates the importance of raising quality livestock and the work required of those who pursue careers in agriculture.
In the last 36 years, the Sale has raised nearly $10.3 million for the youth involved in Colorado’s 4-H and FFA programs. In 2016, the JLS raised over $493,500.
Congratulations to Tyka Scott of Burlington, CO for receiving reserve champion on her beef, which sold for $22,500.
K.C. Electric is a proud sponsor of this event.

Electricity can spread outward through the ground in a circular shape from the point of contact. As you move away from the center, large differences in voltages can be created. You can still be electrocuted!

A. Gun the engine to get across it quickly and call for help.
B. Get out of the car and inspect the line to see if it is energized.
C. Stay in your car, as far away as possible and call 911.
