Locally grown livestock can be found at the Central Florida Fair 

The Central Florida Fair would like to invite you to join us Sunday, March 12 and Sunday, March 19, 2017 as our local 4H and FFA Youth Market Livestock exhibitors enter the sale ring to auction off their prize winning livestock projects to the highest bidder.

The Central Florida Fair is a not for profit district Fair which has been celebrating the agricultural heritage of Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia counties for over 105 years.  With 2,500 livestock entries annually the Central Florida Fair presents one of the largest livestock shows in the state.

The Fair developed four very distinctive Youth Market Livestock Programs which provide competitive events for local 4H and FFA youth who are interested in the beef, pork, lamb and poultry industries.  The goal of the Central Florida Fair Youth Market Livestock Program is to provide a real life educational opportunity for local youth who want to experience producing quality livestock for today’s discriminating consumer.

The Central Florida Fair is very proud of its Youth Market Livestock Program.   Emphasis is placed on the educational aspects of the program which include; breed selection, genetics conformation, feed management, disease control, record keeping, showmanship and marketing.  The program stresses the need for a healthier, better quality animal in addition to promoting the livestock industry in Florida and the importance of the industry to the economic welfare of Florida.

The Central Florida Fair has been selling locally grown livestock for over 40 years.  If you are looking for locally grown livestock to stock your freezer or hens that will produce fresh eggs look no further than the Central Florida Fair.

Many of our buyers cannot use the meat personally, so they donate the meat to various organizations around Central Florida such as the Russell Home, Edgewood Boys Ranch, and Orlando Rescue Mission.  This is a great opportunity to support the youth of Central Florida and to support great organizations in the area.

Whether it’s cattle, sheep, swine or poultry; the Youth Market Livestock Programs at the Central Florida Fair offer many opportunities for exhibitors and guests to enjoy.
