Teens and kids getting ready for the Junior Livestock Auction
RED BLUFF, Calif. - Kids and teens with the FFA and 4-H clubs are getting ready to sell their livestock on Saturday at the Tehama District Fair.
Clayton Cox, 13, has been around cattle his whole life and is apart of the El Camino 4-H Club.
He said last October he bought a shorthorn steer and named Rogue.
It was up to Cox to make sure Rogue was well fed and groomed for the Tehama District Fair.
"This is my first show steer. I had a heifer last year," he said. "I've learned a lot on how cattle act and their behaviors and things like that."
Rogue is about a year and a half now and weighs 1315 pounds.
Cox has taken Rogue to various shows in California and Nevada.
He hopes to sell his steer for about $6 to $8 a pound. Last year the average price beef being sold was about $5.
The Junior Livestock Auction is Saturday morning at the Tehama District Fair.
