I remember when I was secretary-treasurer of the Tehama County Junior Livestock Auction back in the late 1960s and 1970s, and how excited we were when the auction grossed more than $100,000 for the first time.
This year the 253 lots with add-on money was at $1,093.889.73 on May 20, including the $164,025.10 in add-on dollars. Auctioneers Matt Wolters and Jake Parnell were on the auction block. What a generous community.
