Gordy Mielke with Jilbert's Dairy

MARQUETTE, MI – Great Lakes Radio News – As the Marquette County Fair gets underway today, it’s important to remember that one of the fundamental key components of the event is the annual livestock auction. This event showcases the work of area youth who raise the animals that are being auctioned off. They work to raise the animals and they earn the money that is made by the auction.

Gordy Mielke, Sales Manager with Jilbert’s Dairy, joined Sunny 101.9’s Mark and Walt in the Morning today to encourage people and businesses to take part and bid in the auctions. As Gordy explained, the cash goes to the kids and many use the money for college tuition and other important items.
