FFA and 4-H youth are at the heart of the Sonoma County Fair and the Jr. Livestock Auction. Witness the culmination of a year’s work for young aspiring ranchers and farmers who select, purchase, feed, and groom livestock to be judged, graded and sold at the Fair. Their projects include steers, lambs, hogs, rabbits and poultry. We are very proud of our young farmers and invite you to meet them at this year’s Fair.
