The livestock are projects of 4-H club members and Future Farmers of America (FFA) and will go to the highest bidder in an old-fashioned auction on the last day of the Fair. The money goes to each young owner to support next year's project.
The small animal exhibit area features rabbits, poultry and small pets raised by youths and adults. This is a good place to ask owners about their goats, English budgies, chicks and ducklings, peacocks, rabbits, hens, quail swans, chickens, ducks, geese, cuckoos and roosters.
Nearby is a petting zoo, a chance to touch and enjoy domesticated animals. Also in the AgVenture Park are Kids Pedal Tractor Pulls, the Let's Pretend Farm Time Tour, and the Alaskan Potbelly Pig Races.
