We encourage all businesses to support the efforts of the local 4-H’ers. Any individual or business can be a buyer at the auction. Any person wanting to know more about buying at the Livestock Auction, including Friends of 4-H, contact the 4-H Fair office during the 4-H Fair week, phone 812-372-6133. Register the day of the sale or contact the Livestock Sale chairman, Becky Speaker at 812-350-1526, Nathan Downey at 812-371-8461, Andy Whiteside at 812-344-8044 or Corey Jenkins at 812-343-8107.

What is a “Friend of 4-H”?

Friends of 4-H is an opportunity for businesses to donate money to the Bartholomew County 4-H Livestock Auction without having to designate what youth’s animal is purchased.  If you cannot or prefer not to come to the sale, you still have the opportunity to support the 4-H Program and be recognized for your support by becoming a “Friend of 4-H”.

You may do this by making a minimum $50.00, tax-deductible donation to the Bartholomew County Friends of 4-H Fund.  Your donation, along with all other donations to the fund, will be combined and used to purchase animals at the 4-H Livestock Sale.  A representative of the 4-H Livestock Sale Committee will act as the bidder for the Friends of 4-H.  Stop by the Fair Office or contact Becky Speaker, Nathan Downey, Andy Whiteside or Corey Jenkins.  You can also use the form above to mail donations for the auction to Bartholomew County 4-H Fair, Attn: Livestock Auction, PO Box 342, Columbus, IN  47202.  We also have a paypal account for donations, search for barthcountyfair@gmail.com (please note that the donation is for the Friends of 4-H.)
