The Williams County Dairy Association is currently soliciting donations for the “Williams County Dairy Project Bid Fund” This program pools donations from individuals and businesses to support 4-H and FFA dairy projects at the Williams County Junior Fair Sale to be held September 17th.
The dairy projects, unlike other market animals, do not go to market or to the buyer, but are returned back home to re-enter the dairy herd. Each individual 4-H/FFA member enters his/her project through the sale ring to be bid on as recognition and support for his/her efforts in the project(s). This program allows those who wish to contribute to the livestock auction, but are unable t attend to purchase an animal, to still be a Junior Fair supporter.
Contributors to the fund will be publicized as a supporter of the “Dairy Project Bid Fund Buyers.” Any amount of financial support is greatly appreciated for the Junior Fair youth. Contributions may be made by September 9th to Williams County Dairy Association, c/o Linda Ott, 15014 County Road M, Pioneer OH 43554-9731. Questions may be directed to John Radabaugh President, Williams County Dairy Association at 419.769-3932 (C) or 419.298.3146 (H), or Linda Ott, Executive Secretary-Treasurer at 419.553.7560 (C) or 419.485.5146 (H).
