Huge Herds At Fair
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
