TROY, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County is sad that we cannot experience certain annual events such as our 4-H Livestock Auction and Cow Chip Bingo Fundraiser with all of you in-person this year. However, we are excited to offer both of these opportunities in a virtual format.
- 4-H Livestock Auction: This year the auction will take place over Facebook. The auction will officially start on September 7th and last for a few days. For the time being if you would like to see the rules and regulations of the auction, this years auction animals, and the youth we are supporting, check out our 2020 Virtual Livestock Auction Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/Rensselaer-County-2020-Virtual-Livestock-Auction-110212034121570/
- Cattle Program Fundraiser-Cow Chip Bingo: Use this link to get your virtual ticket(s): https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/_238 Each ticket represents 1 square, which is $5 a piece. You will then be prompted to select your square(s) on a Google Doc. We will use the layout from the Google Doc to make our actual Cow Chip Bingo Grid. And for those of you who have never heard of Cow Chip Bingo, a cow is then released out on the grid. Whichever square the cow “chips” (or poops) in is the winner and will receive a monetary prize. 1st place is $100, 2nd place is $75, and 3rd place is $50. The event will be held on Facebook Live on Thursday, September 3rd. All payments must be sent to our office (61 State, Troy NY 12182) or taken over the phone before the start of the Facebook Live event on the scheduled date.
