ALCOLA – Despite the unusual circumstances, the Clarion County Fair’s 2020 Livestock Auction still drew a large crowd of local business owners, area officials and community members, whose support garnered just over $90,000 in purchases.
During last Friday night’s event, held in the large barn at the fairground inside the Redbank Valley Municipal Park, the crowd of local buyers raised a total of $91,394.65 for young farmers who raised animals over the past year to show and sell at the local fair.
As part of the annual auction since its start 32 years ago, father and son Gary and Dan Rankin of Rankin Auction Services of Clarion took bids on 58 animals weighing a combined total of 22,717 pounds.
