Online Livestock Auction Countdown

It’s been called the life blood of the Nevada County Fair. But what happens to the Junior Livestock and Ag Mechanics Auction when the Fair is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic? You adapt; and that is what is happening this year as the livestock auction goes online for a three day event in August.
Nevada County Fairgrounds Manager, Patrick Eidman, says he is really impressed by how quickly the youth have adjusted to this year’s auction process.
