Angels Camp, CA — The Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee brought in big numbers this year.

Fair Officials say not only did the Junior Livestock Auction top $377,000 in sales, but nearly 38,000 people went through the turnstile as well.

CEO-Fair Manager Laurie Giannini says, “Our paid attendance was up.  It was a really great fair, the Saturday numbers were up 4,000 over the year before.” She attributes the increase to this year’s addition of a professional rodeo.

It was an awesome payday for the 261 students who had entries in the livestock auction.

Here is the Fair Official’s list of average prices for animals:

Beef $4.14 per pound

Swine $6.35 per pound

Sheep $7.63 per pound

Goats $8.56 per pound

Poultry Pens $43.33 per pound

Poultry Broiler $62.85 per pound

Turkeys $23.12 per pound

Rabbit Pens $12.37 per pound

Rabbit Fryer $74.00 per pound
