CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Young farmers across West Virginia are offering their livestock projects up for sale this week.
The state Department of Agriculture says the annual Future Farmers of America Ham, Bacon and Egg Show and Sale will be held Monday night at the state Capitol Complex.
The auction will feature the top 50 hams, 50 bacons and 10 dozens of eggs produced by students from schools throughout the state. All hams and bacons are processed in facilities that meet commercial kitchen standards.
Money earned from the auction is frequently used by FFA students to help pay for college. Some use their earnings for their next livestock project.
