2015 4-H Auction Bill

Welcome to the 2015 LaGrange County 4-H Livestock Auction! We thank you for your vital and continued interest in the 4-H program. We are proud of the fact that we have one of the best supported 4-H auctions in northeastern Indiana. We are extremely grateful to all those who have contributed to this program.

2015 4-H Auction Sale Order


  1. Rabbits
  2. Poultry
  3. Dairy Breed Champion Milk
  4. Dairy Goat Champion Milk
  5. Pork Chops
  6. Sheep
  7. Dairy Beef
  8. Beef
  9. Market & Meat Goats
  10. Started Calves
  11. Swine

Please note that market animals can be processed at Mishler’s, Yoder’s and Homestyle Butchering in Middlebury at the buyer’s request. A three and one-half percent (3.5%) commission is charged on the gross amount of each item sold through the auction. These revenues accrue to the 4-H livestock committee for continued operation of 4-H livestock facilities and programs. The various state and/or federal check offs to support livestock industry promotion and education, such as for beef, pork and sheep, are also covered by the sales commission. Much of the help is donated from parents and committee members.

Please keep in mind that each animal sold in the auction will need to be declared a turn or a keep after the animal is sold. If there are multiple buyers when the animal is sold, the final bidder will determine if it will be a turn or a keep. Absolutely NO changes will be made after the animal is sold. This change only applies to the animals that have a support price listed on the auction sale catalog.

Your generosity has made a significant difference in the lives of 4-H youth in terms of support for continuing education or simply preparing for next year’s project. In addition, the 4-H Club Association has made many improvements to the 4-H Fairgrounds over the past several years. These benefits are made possible as a result of community support such as yours. The 4-H Club Association has many more long-range plans to fulfill. We hope we can count on your continued support.

A personal invitation is extended to all our buyers to join us for our annual recognition banquet to be held this year on Sunday afternoon July 26th at 5:00 p.m. at the Trading Place Pavilion across from the Shipshewana Auction on 325 Van Buren Street in Shipshewana. We hope you can join us.

Once again, thank you for your support and welcome to the 2015 4-H Livestock Auction!

Jerold Mishler, Chairman
4-H Livestock Committee

A Response to Recent Concerns

In response to recent concerns regarding the “No Guns and Weapons Allowed” sign, the LaGrange County 4-H Fair Association, Inc.’s stance is the promotion of the safety and wellbeing of the 4-Her’s and their families, NOT gun control.

Due to a past event regarding a firearm, it was suggested to have a measure in place for the misuse of carry-on firearms and weapons on the grounds.

The 4-H Fairgrounds is a privately owned facility owned by the LaGrange County 4-H Fair Association, Inc. and in the best interests of the safety of these facilities and families we have posted that firearms and weapons not be allowed on the grounds.

Remember if you bring a classic car to the cruise in your gate entry fee is FREE thanks to Lakeside Occasions, Emma Cafe, and Tiffany's Resturant. We hope to see you Wednesday!


LaGrange 4-H Fair: Moving forward with new technology.
