Join Brevard County 4-H for our annual 4-H Fair & Market Poultry Auction on Friday, April 12th and Saturday, April 13th. at the UF/IFAS Extension Brevard County office in Cocoa at 3695 Lake Drive, Cocoa, FL 32926. This event is free and open to the public. Be sure to stop by to admire 4-Her’s displays of creativity and talent, socialize with our youth exhibitors, participate in the silent auction, and bid on market poultry hens during the live auction.
What it is About
The market poultry auction will be held on Saturday, April 13th. beginning at 9 AM with our FREE continental breakfast. This is the perfect time to chat with 4-H members and learn all about their projects before bidding on their chickens when the auction begins at 10:00 AM.
For the past eight months, 4-H members have been raising their chicks in preparation for this annual event. This year, over 100 Golden Star Sex-Link laying hens will be auctioned off by our youth. Proceeds from the auction will go back to the 4-H members to help them fund their animal projects for the coming year.
The 4-H Fair is an excellent opportunity for Brevard County youth to exhibit the projects they have worked hard on all year. 4-H members can complete projects in poultry, rabbits, horticulture, fine arts, cooking and baking, goats, STEM, and so much more. All their hard work will be on display for this year’s fair. While 4-H youth do earn ribbons for exemplary projects, their work in 4-H earns them so much more – 4-H is the only youth development program that is proven to teach youth essential life skills such as responsibility, teamwork, and problem-solving that help to develop lifelong leaders.
