Buyer Resources in Manistee County 4-H

The Manistee 4-H Livestock Council and the participating 4-H Youth recognize the commitment of our Buyers & Sponsors at our Annual 4-H Livestock Auction. Without their renewed commitment every year, we would not be able to provide this experience for our youth.

Here we provide recourses and information to directly support local livestock project youth.


Buyer & Sponsor Resources

There are a number of ways to be recognized as a Buyer or Sponsor that supports Manistee, Benzie & Lake County 4-H. Learn more about the ways you can support livestock project youth in your community!

The Traditional Buyer

The Traditional Buyer is one who supports 4-H Livestock Youth by purchasing a project animal at Auction every year.

Traditional Buyers can opt to have their purchase processed for meat for themselves or food pantry donation, or can offer the animal up for Resale at Auction.
