2021 Augusta County 4-H & FFA Market Animal Sale
ONLINE BUYER INFORMATION
If you are purchasing an animal online for a business you are going to put the
business name in the First Name Box and then you are going to put the contact
persons name in the Last Name box.
If you wish to bid for multiple businesses, you must register EACH business
separately. You will only be able to purchase an animal with ONE bidder account
at a time. Multiple online registered bidder numbers cannot be combined to
purchase a single animal. Only ONE buyer name will be announced. If you wish
to bid with several bidder numbers, please come to bid in-person.
Animals are sold BY THE POUND. However, you will see all sale prices
online as hundredweights. Example: You hear the auctioneer selling a hog
for $2.25/lb. On your screen, it will show up as $225. You are NOT purchasing
that animal for that amount. In reality, it means the price is $2.25/lb.
In Person Price $2.25/lb..................Online Price You Will View $225
In Person Price $6.75/lb..................Online Price You Will View $675
In Person Price $12.50/lb................Online Price You Will View $1,250
If an animal is bought online a Market Animal Show Representative will call you
to find out the destination of the animal. It is very important that you make sure
the phone number is correct when you register, because that will be the number
we call for any online purchases. If the buyer is not reached the animal
will be FLOORED.
YOU MUST have already made a pre-appointment with a slaughter/processing
facility. We will verify your reservations to our records to ensure you are on the
correct slaughter/processing facility list. If you are not, you will have to take the
animal home or sell back to the floor.
The online auction is real time and the auctioneers receive the online bid less
than a one second delay. You do not have to bid 5 minutes in advance, you can
bid real time with the sale.
Please make checks payable to Rockingham Livestock. Buyers are NOT to directly pay the youth exhibitors. Buyers must pick up their sale bills the day of the sale in person or notify the MAS Board of their intentions to pay.
Sale starts at 10:00am on Saturday May 1, 2021. Sale order is Steers, Hogs, Lambs
