Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Products Auction

The 27th Annual Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Products Auction was a success!

We are grateful to the buyers, donors, attendees and volunteers who help support our Wisconsin 4-H Youth.

 

The Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Products Auction at the Wisconsin State Fair celebrated its 27th year. In total, this year’s auction raised more than $100,000. Proceeds from the auction benefit the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, which supports Wisconsin 4-H activities including 4-H conferences, teaching materials and workshops, and overall development of 4-H youth.

This year’s BEST OF SHOW honor went to SAILER’S FOOD MARKET AND MEAT PROCESSING of Elmwood, WI, for their winning Salami.

It sold to EGG INNOVATIONS for $2,000!
