34th ANNUAL FAYETTE COUNTY FARM BUREAU FARM EQUIPMENT CONSIGNMENT AUCTION IS MARCH 11, 2017 - 8:30 A.M. AT THE KY HORSE PARK AT THE ALLTECH ARENA PARKING LOT
34th Annual Fayette County Farm Bureau Farm Equipment Consignment Auction
Our 2017 Equipment Consignment Auction held Saturday, March 11, 2017, was our best auction yet. Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers, board members, Farm Bureau staff, the Kentucky Horse Park, and all who participated. It was only because of their efforts we raised enough funds to sustain our scholarship program for Fayette County Youth.
Last year's auction was the largest attended event in our history, and the largest sale of its kind in Kentucky! The auction attracted over buyers and sellers from all over Kentucky, as well as other states. There were over 1,551 pieces of equipment consigned and over 1,790 bidders.
All proceeds from this sale go toward funding scholarships for Fayette County High School students. Every year, deserving Fayette County High School seniors are awarded a 4-year $20,000 scholarship which would equate to $5,000 per year toward a 4-year undergraduate degree. In addition, this auction allows us to offer up to $10,000 Vo-Tech scholarship to a student pursuing a 2-year Vo-Tech degree.
