First Ag Mechanics Auction will be at fair

The first-ever Ag Mechanics Auction, at which items made by FFA members will be sold, will be held at 6 p.m. Aug. 9 at the Nevada County Fair.

The auction is part of the FFA’s Agricultural Mechanics Program, which teaches FFA members such disciplines as woodworking and welding.

“The Ag Mechanics Auction provides an opportunity for students who may not have animal projects to participate in the fair,” said Jim Drew, FFA instructor at Nevada Union High School. Drew’s students will exhibit picnic tables, garden benches and bird feeders.

Projects submitted by Bear River High School FFA members to be sold include metal art sculpture, barbecues, gates, utility trailers and wheelbarrows.

Cash prizes and ribbons will be awarded to the winners selected by judges prior to the auction. Only blue-ribbon winners will make it to the auction block.
