We are also excited to tell everyone about the Santa Barbara County Fair Virtual Livestock Show and Auction! We have an amazing group of kids in Santa Maria that work very hard every year raising animals and/or building a project for the fair. It was important to the Fair Administration, Board Members and Volunteers to offer the annual livestock show and auction. This year’s virtual auction will feature market beef, goat, sheep, swine, replacement heifers and industrial arts from our local 4-H, FFA and independent students. The auction is a great opportunity to support our youth who have made agriculture a priority in their life. Go to the Virtual Show & Auction section on our website to pre-register as a virtual auction buyer beginning Wednesday, June 9th and mark your calendar for July 15th -16th to join in on the virtual auction.
