89th Annual NWDJLS Premium Sale March 6th

The FFA & 4H members’ animals that are selected for the sale are the BEST of over 2,000 entries shown at NWDJLS. These students have worked every day for months feeding, washing, exercising and practicing with their animals. Making the sale is the highest honor they can receive.

FAQ for those that might not be familiar with this outstanding opportunity to support the next generation of agricultural leaders:


Will I be purchasing an actual animal?

No, you will not be purchasing an actual animal. The money spent at the sale goes directly to the student. The students use the funds they receive to continue their showing project in future seasons and pay off feed bills from this season.


How much should I expect to spend?

That is entirely up to you. It is always a good idea to come to an auction with a budget in mind. Often times, buyers work together to purchase a student’s project.


Who can attend the Buyer’s Dinner?

Anyone who intends to participate in the Premium Sale Auction and is 21 years of age and older is invited to enjoy a complimentary steak dinner.


Why should my business get involved?

By supporting the NWDJLS Premium Sale Auction you are supporting the future of our state—our students. Please join us as we celebrate these youth and their accomplishments.
