There will be two registration lines in the arena -- one for new buyers and
a separate line for the pre-registered buyers who receive a packet in the mail.
The ladies at the registration table will remove the registration form from
your bidder cards. Each buyer will receive a maximum of two admission passes
per registration form, the wristbands must be worn in the arena at all times.
New Buyers must pay a $300 buyer registration fee at the gate, this amount
will be credited toward their bill.
All buyers must be registered and have a number to use for bidding. Instant
recognition can be given to buyers using this number. The name registered to
that number will be used for recognition and billing purposes. Should this
name not be satisfactory, please make the change prior to the conclusion of
the sale. Those buyers that lose or misplace a number may obtain another at
the registration table. Also, should you lose or misplace your number someone
else might try to use it. All new buyers will pay a $300 registration fee at
the Arena Gate, this fee will be credited to the buyer's account.
All projects will be sold by the head. No animal sold in the Auction
Sale is to sell higher than the Grand Champion. The Reserve Grand Champion
will not be allowed to sell higher than the Grand Champion, and no other
animal will be allowed to sell for more than the Reserve Champion. In the event
that there is a dispute as to the highest bidder, the Auctioneer has the right
to settle the dispute and his decision will be final.

Billing & Payment
Invoices will be mailed during February. To ensure
that exhibitors receive their funds at the earliest possible date, we ask that
buyers pay their invoices upon receipt.
Credit Cards will be accepted from Buyers for Sale Purchase Invoices (projects purchased at the Blue Ribbon Sale and Add-Ons). The Show will charge a 4% Management fee for each transaction. All Major Credit Cards will be accepted.
Purchasing the Animal or Just the Ribbon
Some exhibitors have chosen to retain ownership of his animal for future use
at another show and still be in the sale. Those exhibitors will be selling
their ribbon only, representing their accomplishments that
make them eligible for the auction. Remember, an exhibitor without their project
in the sale ring indicates no animal is being sold, therefore, no resale credit
can be given to the buyer.
Each market animal exhibitor (with the exception of the Grand & Reserve
Champions) has the opportunity to pull their animal prior to the Sale for their
own use and sell the ribbon only at the Sale. Exhibitors and their parents
have the option to decide if they want to keep the animal for their own use
or sell it at the auction. Exhibitors wishing to keep their animal notify the
Division Superintendent after judging and will appear in the Auction Arena
without their animal. The exhibitor's option to keep the animal does not apply
to the Grand and Reserve Champion projects. All Grand and Reserve champions
with the exception of broiler, turkeys and rabbits will be terminal. Champions
kept by the buyer will be delivered to a processing plant after being cleared
by the drug test.
