Although sales totals were down from last year, the number of buyers was up.
"We had 55 new buyers," said auction coordinator Pam Gardner. "That was great. People always step forward to help the kids here."
The largest sale for swine was Jordan Berry, whose grand champion barrow sold for $3,000.
Ten-year 4-H members Meagan Handy and Ashlyn Archer tied for top rabbit sales, garnering $400 each for their meat pens. Top sale for goats was $450, made by Kyle McCammack.
Two 4-H'ers donated auction earnings. Ashlyn Archer's $400 will go to the rabbit barn and the Putnam County Community Foundation, while Lindsey Nichols will send $850 to the Drew Christy Medical Fund.
Animal totals for the sale were: Swine, $67,675; sheep, $13,475; rabbits, $2,700; goats, $7,025; poultry, $1,300; dairy, $18,925; and beef, $68,785.
