Junior Fair Sale “Buyers Club”

If you can’t attend the Fairfield County Jr. Livestock Sales on October 10 & 11, 2024, provide your support by becoming a member of the Buyers Club!

If you’d like to support the sale, but prefer not to attend in person or would like to support multiple youth with your financial support, joining the 2024 Buyers Club may be for you. Thanks to the 2023 Buyers Club members, their generous donations benefited 188 youth during the Junior Fair Livestock Sale. Find all the member’s names, and more detail about what the 2023 Buyers Club accomplished linked here.


As you know the Junior Fair Sale is the culmination of months, and for many youth years of dedication and hard work. Many of these young people use the proceeds of the sale of their animals to fund their next project while also saving money for their college fund.

Beginning in 2017 the Sale Committee added a new opportunity for local businesses, organizations and individuals to get involved in supporting the Jr. Livestock Sale through the creation of the Fairfield County Junior Fair Sale Buyers Club.

The basics of it are simple. Those who can’t attend the sale, or perhaps those wishing to provide support at a level less than enough to purchase an entire animal are invited to make a donation that will be pooled into the Buyers Club funds. Anyone is welcome to participate in Buyers Club including local businesses, organizations, or even individuals and no donation is too small.

The Buyers Club is managed by the Fairfield County Junior Fair Sale Committee. Contributions will be accepted throughout the year in any amount and are 100% tax deductible.

The pool of funds that are contributed to the Buyers Club will be used to make purchases of projects throughout the sale that may have lesser buyer support than others. The goal is to ensure that all youth earning a sale slot are rewarded for their hard work and effort while also allowing another opportunity for additional buyers to participate. In researching the concept of a Buyers Club it was discovered that several other counties around Ohio including Delaware, Knox, Marion and Ottawa, to name a few, have been doing this successfully for years.

To become a member of the 2024 Fairfield County Junior Fair Sale Buyers Club all you need to do is complete this form and submit it along with your tax deductible contribution to the Fairfield County Junior Fair Sale Committee.

Thank you for considering this opportunity to support the 4-H and FFA Youth of Fairfield County, and investing in their future.
