Join us for the 27th Annual Governor’s Blue Ribbon Meat Products Auction

benefiting the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation

Date:  Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Place:  Case IH Coliseum at Wisconsin State Fair

Time:  5:30 p.m.

Last year, Governor Walker encouraged attendees to raise their bidder cards high for Wisconsin 4-H youth. In total, over $130,000 was raised in 2017, and sights are set to surpass this record-breaking amount in 2018. Auction’s proceeds support Wisconsin 4-H activities including 4-H conferences, teaching materials and workshops, and overall development of 4-H youth.  The 2017 Best of Show Award went to meat processor Wyttenbach Meats of Prairie du Sac, earning the honor for its Ultimate Bacon. It sold to Pagel’s Ponderosa, Ron’s Wisconsin Cheese and John T. Pagel for $16,000. It was generously donated back and resold to Wisconsin Souvenir Milkcaps for $6,000.

Please join us on August 7, 2018 for another record breaking year.
