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.
2017 Fair Marshal
Randy Schuett has been a part of the Waukesha County Fair for over five decades. His father, Bob Schuett, inspired the Schuett family to get involved in the Fair, and held the Fair Marshal title exactly 10 years ago. As a child, Randy asked his father to let him and his brother, Jeff, show their cattle. It sparked a passion in Randy and he’s been involved with the Waukesha County Fair ever since, holding titles including director of the parking committee, director of the board, director of the mainstage and entertainment committee, and even Fair president from 1992 to 1996. Today, the Schuett family tradition continues as Randy’s children and grandchildren follow in his footsteps and show their pigs and steers at the Fair.
In 1992, Randy played an integral role in the future of the Fair by fighting to keep much-needed revenue from beverage sales with the Fair. Not only did it help the Fair move forward that year, it set us up for success in the future. In addition to being a vital member of the Fair, Randy is an esteemed veterinarian and owner of Pewaukee Veterinary Service. Not only was he named Veterinarian of the Year in 2010 by WVMA (Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association), but he’s also been the official veterinarian of the Fair for over four decades.
