Williams Lake and District 4-H sale to go ahead in August

There will be no youth in attendance

The annual 4-H sale will proceed in 2020, however, in order to keep members safe, there will be no youth in attendance.

“Although the 4-H year hasn’t gone as planned for the 4-H Members with no shows and no camping we can still finish the year on a high with an excellent sale. BC Livestock and the Williams Lake & District 4-H Council will be working out the details which will be published as we get closer to the date,” according to a press release.

The sale will see some of the finest beef, pork, lamb, turkey, small engines, food projects and photographs in the Cariboo on offer through live/video auction.

The event will comply with the B.C.’s COVID-19 guidelines including less than 50 people in attendance at any time and have social distancing protocols in place.

A sale list with photos is expected to be available soon.

“There will be 48 steers, 47 swine, 18 lambs, four turkeys, three small engines, four food projects, nine framed photographs.”
