4H Pig Sells for $36,000 [VIDEO]
Incredible! This young man had quite a night at a recent auction when his 4H project raised $36,000! It was all for a great cause.
Dustin has Cystic Fibrosis and not only did he make some great money for his hard work, he and the auctioneers and staff have brought awareness to a disease that affects so many.
This auction took place in June in Michigan and the highest bid was $135 per pound!!!
According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:
Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.
There are so many hard working 4H kids in the Western New York area as well.

I think the Allegany County Fair describes the auction and what it is all about best:
We would like to invite you to participate in the annual Allegany County Ag Expo 4-H Livestock Sale at the Allegany County Fairgrounds. This auction is the result of months of hard work for Allegany County 4-H club members. The livestock sale offers a unique opportunity for youth to market their animals and to then expand their future livestock projects or assist with future endeavors. In addition, it offers a wonderful opportunity to support the youth of our community.
