What happens after I buy an animal?

Once you have purchased an animal, you will be asked to select a processor. This is where the animal will be taken to be harvested for meat products and you will be contacted by the processor when your order is ready to be picked up.

Where does my money go?

100% of the money goes to the youth exhibitor to help them purchase their next project, pay for feed, and everything else their projects entail.

How do I transport the animal that I purchased?

The sale committee and volunteers take care of hauling the livestock to the processor.

Can I support the youth, but not take the animal?

YES! You can purchase an animal and donate it back to either the youth exhibitor or donate it back to another organization. We also have the option for buyers to give “add-ons” directly to the youth which will be added to their sale check.

Is my purchase tax deductible?

In most cases there are tax advantages, but everyone’s situation is different.

Can a company or business buy an animal?

Business are more than welcome to purchase an animal. This is a great way to promote your business or company. Many will have the animal processed and use the meat as gifts for employees, company picnics, etc.

This will be a hybrid sale sold by the head. Buyers have the option of coming to the sale in person or bidding online (with a 5% buyer’s premium).

Species will be divided into groups and sold on a rotating order. Grand and Reserve Champions of each species will be sold at 10 a.m. (Turkeys/Rabbits) and 1 p.m. (Beef, Sheep, Swine, and Goats).

Rabbits can be purchased live or for processing.

Turkeys will be processed, refrigerated, and ready to take with you the day of the sale.
