MARSHALL, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) — COVID-19 caused Harrison County agriculture 4-H leaders to come up with a Plan B for students because Farm City Week was canceled. Farm City Week is the annual livestock show in the county. The event generates almost four hundred thousand dollars for the county. The event organizers created an online auction on stockshowauction.com to for the public to make bids on the students’ animals and projects created for the event.
“It is a premium sale which means you won’t get the animal but your donations will help the kids. The kids are having to learn a tough lesson and I wanted to do my part and make it up to kids and help,” said Darrin Peeples, President of Harrison County Agribusiness Association.
The online auction begins at midnight and ends on April 2nd.
