Teens Learn About Agriculture at Schuylkill County Fair
SCHUYLKILL COUNTY FAIR -- The 4H auction day at the Schuylkill County Fair is a big deal. "I do this because I just love coming out here and showing all these animals," 4H member Stefani Strouse said. "Just having a good time out here." The auction has been going on at the fair for about 30 years. All of the animals at the auction are raised by 4H kids like Strouse. She learned how to care for the animals from 4H educators. Over the course of a year, 4H teaches the students the ins and outs of raising an animal by themselves. At the end of the program, the livestock is sold at the auction.
