Junior Livestock Auctions a Lamb for Frank Estill Scholarship

Junior Livestock Sale and BBQ took place last Friday. It was a night of fun, donations, and laughter. The highlight for many was the first annual auction of a lamb for the Frank Estill Scholarship at the end of the night.​​ For those who attended, you know what that moment was like for all who were preset. Many of Franks Estills loved ones and friends gathered around as one friend of his from Surprise Valley FFA showed a lamb and the auction began. Before it even had started, people started to weep hearing the auctioneer talk about the impact and love everyone shared for Frank Estill. The first bidding war was so special seeing when the price per lb grew higher and higher. The really moving moment was how many times the lamb would be resold and the bidding we started again. The lamb kept getting resold and resold again and again. Each resell of the lamb just brought on more and more tears from the FFA and 4H members, attendees and the auctioneer.

After 9 resells and 10 purchases of this lamb, the Junior Livestock Show was able to raise $37,520 for the Frank Estill Scholarship. The night was so moving and there was not a dry eye in the room. The whole environment was so moving for so many. A big thank you to Patriot Restoration, Sheeprock Ranch, Cherokee Express, K & K Distributing, Cal Creek Meat, Anklin Ranch, Alturas Ranches, Alturas Les Schwab Tire Center, and Pacific Crest Federal Credit Union for their generous contribution, you made the first auction for the Frank Estill Scholarship a massive success.
