Buyer's Breakfast at 7:30 AM
JLA Buyers Breakfast sponsored by
Tulare County Sheriff’s Posse
Auction at 10:00 AM
The cost of a 4-H or FFA animal project is higher than that of a commercial stockman because of the individual attention given to that animal's development. This special attention deserves a premium price above the market price. The "break even" cost will allow the exhibitors to earn a profit margin that can be reinvested into next year's project or put away for college.

TULARE COUNTY FAIR FOUNDATION
The Tulare County Fair Foundation, (TCFF) a 501(c)3 charitable organization, was created by a small group of avid Fair supporters to SAVE the Fair. Governor Brown eliminated 100% of Fair funding, of which the Fair received over $200,000. These funds were used to run the fair and the majority of the funds were used to support the Junior Livestock program through the livestock shows, premiums, and awards. If the Fair is going to continue, TCFF must generate funds to augment the Fair’s budget. Please consider joining the TCFF Heritage Society so that the Fair can continue. Membership is $500 per year for a family. This year during the JLA, animals will sell to benefit the Foundation. We encourage you to support the entire Junior Livestock Auction, but would appreciate your consideration to support the Foundation animals by either purchasing one of them, or by supporting TCFF with an add-on. Help us save the Fair. Support the Foundation. Our Mission: Tulare County Fair Foundation celebrates the heritage of agriculture through the bounty of the county and works to ensure a legacy of agricultural literacy.
