What Makes Prized Livestock??

By  | 

The West Virginia Interstate Fair is full of many events and competitions.

Thursday night the prized animals of the livestock competition were auctioned to the highest bidder.

A lot of time and hard work go into raising livestock. So what does it take to make your animal better than the rest?

4-H and FFA club members spent weeks getting these animals ready for auction.

Most of the animals are bought by businesses, but event is much more than a cattle call.
Many of these people are buying these animals for more than just bragging rights. Animals like this are being sold anywhere from $1 to $2 a pound.
