BUYERS OF LIVESTOCK
Buyers must check in at the office and have current drivers license, or other form of photo ID. The bidder # you receive is only good for that one sale day. All purchases must be paid for on sale day. We accept cash and bankable check ONLY. No credit or debit card for livestock purchases.
SOME INFO TO HELP NEW BUYERS:
Please pay attention to the auctioneer. Some animals are sold by the head, some are sold by the pound. Please note: If you are high bidder on an animal and are the winning bid, you must pay for the animal. Obtaining a bid # is a legal contract. After the purchase it is too late to be confused and need clarification on your purchase. Please ask office for help before you bid!
If you wish to have any vet work done on livestock you have purchased, it is important that you tell the auctioneer IMMEDIATELY when he reads your bid#, NOT after you’ve left the sale ring and are paying for the animal. A list of available vet work and pricing can be acquired from the office.
We prefer that all cattle are removed from yard on day of sale. If for some reason this is not possible, please notify the office upon paying for the animal(s). A feed charge of $3.50 per head per day will be added to your bill. Pigs/goats/sheep must be picked up on sale day. That barn is a day use only facility. No overnight pigs/goats or sheep. Thank You.
