A lucrative Monday evening saw Allen County youngsters rake in more than $41,000 in premiums at the annual Allen County Fair 4-H and FFA Livestock Premium Auction.

The event marks the traditional finale for fair activities at Riverside Park.

Swine were the big sellers at Monday’s auction. Thirteen hogs brought in a combined $13,975 in premiums. A premium is any money a buyer pays above market price. As has become custom for local buyers, the premiums frequently were worth more alone than the animals’ base bids.
