Market Animals Projects for Sale

Last year's video, Bidding at the Auction

Ever wonder what the bidding at livestock auction were all about? This video may help you understand to concept better. May 7 at 3pm 
you interested in bidding or purchasing on a market animal project? Here are several ways to help!

1. Purchase an animal for home consumption! Buying at the auction is fun, rewarding and very easy. You won’t find fresher or better quality food for your table. Arrive before the auction starts, register for a bidder number, and pick out the animal(s) you wish to bid on. Then, bid during the auction. If you win, pay for your purchase and processing charges. We’ll coordinate services using the cutting/wrapping facility of your choice. We have several options to recommend. Charges for processing, cutting and wrapping are explained in the auction catalog. Great news! A portion of your purchase price is tax deductible.

2. Buy-back process - if you want to participate in the auction but don’t want the product, you can still have fun bidding! With “buy-back” all you end up paying is the difference between your bid price and the market price listed in the auction catalog. For example: if the bid value for an animal is $400.00 and the buy-back value is $250.00 you pay only $150.00 (the difference between the bid price and market price). You don’t get the product, but your entire investment is tax deductible, since we are a 501c3 charity.

3. Add-ons – contribute directly to any seller! Just fill out an add-on form and contribute any amount you want to one or more sellers. You can add anywhere from $1.00 to sky’s the limit. Again, it’s tax deductible and a wonderful way to show support for our youth!
