One of the motivating incentives for youth to engage in the livestock enterprise is to exhibit their animal projects— first at the County Fair and win a trip to the great Minnesota State Fair. The ultimate goal at State Fair is to qualify for inclusion in the MLBA 4‑H Purple Ribbon Auction. This is your opportunity to help these young people celebrate their success and to encourage them, and others, to even greater heights of achievement. Livestock can play a major role in youth development.
