The 4-H Livestock Auction is an event where the 4-H'er brings his/her animal into the aren and displays their animal.  An auctioneer then auctions the animal to the highest bidder.  Some buyers purchase for "freezer meat."  Others pay the 4-H'er a premium donation and the animal goes to a commercial processing facility.
