The first-ever Big Fresno Fair Virtual Livestock Sale kicks-off on Friday, October 9 at 11 a.m. and goes until Monday, October 12 at 11:59 p.m. The Virtual Livestock sale will feature nearly 500 animals from dedicated and hard-working 4-H and FFA members throughout Fresno County.
Leading up to the sale, we’ll be featuring 4-H & FFA exhibitors from participating chapters to highlight their animal project and all their hard work, while also giving buyers and our community a glimpse of animals they can bid on!
Meet Oscar Glass, a Sierra 4H student who is in 6th grade at Foothill Elementary in Prather. Here’s what Oscar’s 4H advisor had to say about him:
“Oscar joined Sierra 4h when he turned 9 years old with a single goal… to show a goat. His mom and dad encouraged him to pick a hog just like his sister, but Oscar was adamant that he was a goat boy. Oscar is currently raising Doughnuts, a boer goat, and Sprinkles, a prospect breeding project. He enjoys spending time with his goats, working and preparing for future shows as well as conditioning and working on his goat hair and appearance.
Recently Oscar and the Glass family were evacuated due to the Creek Fire, having his goats with him to work and spend time with were just the ticket to keeping Oscar secure and focused instead of fretting about his home.
Last year Oscar won 1st place in Showmanship for his 4h age group, this year his goals include keeping that showmanship title and finishing in the top three of his market class. Oscar plans to continue his 4H career in meat goats by going to at least one more show next year and hopefully planning the breeding and raising of the next goat he brings to the Fresno Fair.
Oscar says that his favorite part of the Fresno Fair is hanging out with his friends in the barn and showing their animals together”
