Today, individuals, businesses, and foundations pledge monetary donations towards scholarships, cash awards and prizes for youth exhibitors thorough establishing buying groups for the Aksarben Purple Ribbon Auction. Each buying group is unique with a common goal of funding the purchase of a single or multiple auction lots. The cash prize is a way for the exhibitor to recoup the costs of production for his/her animal. The scholarship is an award that helps them continue their higher education.
Thank you to our generous Buying Groups:
