A Buyer’s Guide To Yuma County Fair Junior Livestock Auction
The Yuma County Fair Junior Livestock Auction provides a market for the livestock projects shown during the fair. The Junior members and the Yuma County Fair Board wish to recognize and thank past year’s buyers. They also wish to thank Ranchland Livestock Auction and the many other individuals who generously contribute to the yearly success of this event.
We invite your participation in the sale. If you have any questions or need assistance, the sale crew and superintendents will be glad to help you.
General Sale Information:
All animals, even though sold, shall remain the responsibility of the junior exhibitor until a marketable carcass is hung or buyer takes possession.
A Base Price Value has been established for each animal by either a live bid submitted from a packer or through an ESTIMATED, current, market value as deemed equitable by the Yuma County Fair Board.
Each animal sold and going to a packing plant will stand on its own merit as established by grading and health standards at that packing plant.
How to Buy an Animal
Animals will be sold on a total dollars per head basis.
Bidding will begin at the Base Price Value shown on the sale sheets for each animal.
Animals consigned to the auction may be handled in one of two ways:
Buyers: Please make settlement at the Fair Office after the sale.
Consignors: Please check at the Fair office following the sale to determine the final destination of your sale animal. All market animals going through the auction will be shipped to commercial slaughter unless other instructions are given by the buyer or exhibitors at the Fair office by Monday noon.
