Prize winning ribbons are pocketed and on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. the livestock auction is scheduled to begin. Not only livestock is auctioned, but the ribbons themselves are up for bid.
Grandparents, parents and others bid for the ribbons to allow even the kids who don't have top prize winning livestock to realize a little profit from their efforts. Of course, the kids keep the ribbons! There's lots of drama involved, as Kelli from Sugar Creek Farm explained in her blog. Grandpa was in a bidding war with the manager of the local grain elevator. Grandpa won, of course.
