The amount of money bid above the market price is called "Support Money."

SUPPORT MONEY PAID IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

 

Top Market Animals are auctioned off first. 

MARKET ANIMAL PROCESSING

Change of ownership of the animals sold will take place at 4:00PM on the Sunday after the sale. Animals must be slaughtered at a predetermined time and place chosen by the Livestock Committee.

The majority of buyers will prefer to have their purchase processed, cut, and wrapped ready for freezing. A nominal charge will be added for processing and the packer will charge for cutting and wrapping. Details will be handed out at the sale.

Your Keep Cost will include:

Final Bid Price

Animal Processing

Packing Fees (typically per hanging pound)

I WON THE BID WHAT'S NEXT?

If your bid wins the animal, you have a few options to choose from:

 

OPTION 1

Pay the total bid price and keep the meat for your own use. (To be slaughtered and wrapped at a predetermined professional butcher.)

OPTION 2

Pay the support money ONLY and turning the animal over to the Market Livestock Committee. The Committee will then market the animal through normal marketing channels and that purchaser will pay the remaining balance on the animal (the market price.)  

OPTION 3 

* Applies to market Ewes ONLY

Market ewes may be purchased at the bid price and taken home. These breeding animals may not be taken to another youth market animal sale. The intent is to return the ewes to production.
