Alex Camilletti, of Hayden, shows her reserve champion steer, Flapper, on Saturday during the Routt County Fair 4-H livestock sale. The number of animals in the sale was up this year along with the selling prices compared with last year. The 4-H members sell their livestock projects and typically use the proceeds to pay for college. This year, 10 percent of the proceeds were being donated to 4-H members who have been impacted by the Black Forest Fire. The livestock sale went on as usual despite a wildfire that burned an estimated 800 acres of vegetation Saturday just north of Hayden.
