As part of a longstanding tradition to support youth participating in the Northeast Washington Fair, the Stevens County Cattlemen’s Association will again help manage the beef portion of the Fat Stock Sale. The NEWA Fair will be held Aug. 21-24. The sale is a unique opportunity for youth to sell their livestock to buyers in the community at a premium price. Many participants save their fair money towards college or other long term goals. SCCA helps put on the sale by securing the equipment, auctioneer, ring men and floor price for the event. The 2013 Fat Stock Sale raised over $129,000 that went in the pockets of local youth putting their animals up for sale.
