AITC/4-H Auction Will Be ONLINE for 2020

The Bond County Ag in the Classroom Program, and the Bond County Youth Livestock Committee are pleased to announce the AITC 4-H Livestock Auction will be held this year.  Due to the current health pandemic, the auction will be held ONLINE ONLY. 

Proceeds generated by the online auction will support the 4-H members that have chosen to complete their 2020 4-H projects.  These donations will be used to help those members offset the expenses associated with their livestock project.  In order to maintain social-distancing, the 4-H members will retain their animals and product baskets. 

The online auction will open on July 30 and will close at 7:00 p.m. on August 3.  Following the online auction, the Bond County Youth Livestock Committee will provide radio and print recognition for the 2020 Online Auction Buyers.  Buyers are urged to complete their online registration in advance.  The final bids will be accepted at 7:00 p.m. on August 3.  Buyers must register online in advance at  

AITC and the livestock committee thank Mollett Auction Service for their assistance in conducting the online auction.
