LAKEPORT – Future Farmers of America and 4-H members from around Lake County wrapped up a year of livestock projects at the annual Junior Livestock Auction.

The event was held Saturday afternoon at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport. It's part of the annual Lake County Fair, which runs through this weekend.

Auction officials reported there were approximately 282 lots in this year's auction, the proceeds of which many young people put toward education and other goals.

Full results and auction tallies will be published as soon as they are prepared.

The Lake County Fair wraps up Sunday evening.
