Colorado co-ops energize State Fair livestock sale

For the fifth straight year, Tri-State teamed with Colorado’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives to sponsor the Junior Livestock Sale at the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo. The 2010 bidding totaled $359,675, up $9,175 from last year.

The event featured the top rabbits, hogs, steers, chickens and lambs, all raised by 4-H and FFA youth from across the state who sell their animals to the highest bidders. The kids use the proceeds to help fund their college educations. This year, Tri-State executive vice president and general manager Ken Anderson attended the sale as a member of the Denver Rustlers, a group of Denver-area businessmen and political leaders, who collectively were strong bidders at the event.

“The Colorado’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Junior Livestock Sale is the culmination of hard work and dedication by Colorado’s youth exhibitors. It is always a wonderful experience to see these very generous buying groups support today’s youth,” said fair general manager Chris Wiseman.
