Auction Start Time Debated at Fairgrounds
A meeting Tuesday evening is discussing the time that the Motherlode Junior Livestock auction will happen this summer.
Last month, fair directors voted to make the auction start much earlier, at 2pm rather than 5pm.
However, a number of people objected to the switch, saying that the kids and livestock will be subjected to much more heat and sun, while supporters are saying that other fair events might steal some the auction´s audience.
The meeting is at the Motherlode Fairgrounds.
