San Joaquin AgFest Livestock Auction - CA

San Joaquin AgFest Livestock Auction - CA

San Joaquin AgFest Junior Show and Auction provides the young people in our county's 4-H and FFA programs the opportunity to be actively engaged in the agriculture industry. It is an extension of a decades-old agriculture tradition that teaches our young people true lesson in time and capital investments. Like so many others fairs and shows, we've had to rethink our annual program when Covid-19 started, and this year again we are thinking outside the box and will have a LIVE/SIMULCAST sale for our exhibitors. It is with this sale that we continue the tradition and honor our young people and the investments they have made in their market animal, dairy replacement heifer, and ag mechanics projects. We extend our sincerest gratitude to each and every buyer and donor for their participation and support!


This will be unique as we will have 3 platforms for the Auction.  All auctions will be live time - with the Exhibitors selling their animals at the Stockton Fairgrounds and simulcast through Stock Show Auctions in real time.

The Dairy Replacement Sale will take place on Saturday, June 12th at 7:00 pm

The Beef, Sheep, Goats, Ag Mechanics, Rabbits and Turkeys in that order will be on Saturday, June 19th starting at 9:00 am

The Swine Sale will take place on Saturday, June 19th starting at 9:30 am and will run until the completion of the sale.
