The Junior Livestock Auction is the culmination of a year’s project for 4-H and FFA members. These young men and women have selected, fed, and groomed steer, lamb, poultry, rabbit, goat, or pig as a learning and business venture. They project is brought to the Fair to be judged, graded, and sold. Support of the auction provides recognition for young adults to earn college funds, purchase more animals, and receive practical training in business and agriculture.
Buyers can support a young person in the community by purchasing an animal. Animals may be resold if buyers do not wish to take delivery of the meat.
2016 Fair Marshals
John and Valeta “V” Kuenzi
John and Valeta “V” Kuenzi have been a part of the Waukesha County Fair for nearly four decades—and from the start, it’s been a family affair. John, V, and their children have been involved in various Fair projects including Clowns & Clowning, Pet Parade, food, baking, cake decorating, and animals ever since they can remember.
John and V are the 2016 Fair Marshals—and their grandkids continue to participate in various Fair activities. We are grateful that the Kuenzi name is still active in the Fair today. When asked what their favorite part of the Fair has been and why, V says it centers around watching their own children mature and develop a drive for involvement, and a love for the competitions at the Fair. It has also allowed the Kuenzi family to make friends and build relationships through 4-H that have proven to be invaluable.
