2020 Livestock Auction.jpg

The Delaware State Fair began 102 years ago on the foundation of community and strong agricultural roots. 


Each year, the Junior Livestock Auction continues that tradition by giving back to the youth participating in the livestock program at the Delaware State Fair.


The Junior Livestock Auction represents the culmination of a full year’s hard work and dedication, completing an important early agribusiness education program.

Each year over 350 exhibitors select their sheep, pig, goat, or beef animal to compete at the Delaware State Fair.  Judges then select the cream of the crop to be showcased in the Junior Livestock Auction.

Community leaders, businesses, and supporters assemble to reward the winning exhibitors at the Junior Livestock Auction.

Supporting Delaware youth creates invaluable possibilities and enables growth and potential.


The 2021 Junior Livestock Auction will be held virtually this year and online bidding will begin on Friday, July 30th at 9:00AM. Lots will begin to close starting on Friday July 30th at 6:00PM and will be closing at a rate of 1 - lot every 1-1/2 minutes unless bidding is extended by continuing bidding activity. Add - on bids will be accepted in the minimum amount of $25 and will close at 6:00PM on Saturday July 31st.
