42nd Annual Lamb and Pig Sale at Casper College

The Casper College Agriculture Department hosts its 42nd Annual Lamb and Pig Sale Sunday, April 3. Lamb sales will begin at 8 a.m. and pig sales at 1 p.m. in the Casper College Grace Werner Agricultural Pavilion on the Casper College campus.

Lamb consignors scheduled to attend are Bessler Club Lambs, Casper College, DeLong Club Lambs, Emmy Hornecker, Freeman Livestock, Griffith Livestock, Lambert/Bomberger Livestock, Lee Club Lambs, Rives Livestock, and Stewart Livestock.

Pig consignors scheduled to attend are Adams Family Livestock, Bacon Acres Show Pigs, Black Show Pigs, Burkett Show Pigs, Lambert/Bomberger Livestock, Miller Creek Swine, Stalcup Genetics and Stockwell Family.

The animals for sale at the auction are young animals raised for 4-H and National FFA Organization projects. “Young people from around the state buy the animals, feed them to their optimal weight, and compete for grand champion at the local and state levels,” said Heath Hornecker, Casper College agriculture instructor.

The 2019 reserve champion lamb at the 2019 Hot Springs County Fair was from the college’s 39th Annual Lamb and Pig Sale in 2019. The reserve lightweight division winner hog at the 2020 Natrona County Fair was raised and sold by Casper College last spring, according to Hornecker.

The annual auction is used as a learning experience for the Casper College Agriculture Club members, who are responsible for the setup and handling of the event. Proceeds from the auction will go to the club to help with general and travel expenses.
