Hundreds of young FFA and 4-H exhibitors entered the auction ring to sell animals they raised at the 2019 San Joaquin AgFest Junior Livestock Auction on Saturday at the fairgrounds in Stockton.

Cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits and an agricultural mechanics project took turns in the auction ring. Live poultry was not included in this year’s AgFest program because of the recent confirmation of virulent Newcastle disease in a chicken in the San Mateo County area.

The auction capped a week of market and showmanship judging for the youth competitors.
