Auction Procedures

Registration

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.

 

Buyer Numbers

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.

Bidding

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.

Add-ons

Add-on Forms

Add-on contributions must be made in writing at the auction and/or no later than five (5) working days following the sale to the Show Office. Show management will not require thank you letters from exhibitors or provide public recognition for add-ons received after five (5) working days. Add-ons can be mailed to the Show office or faxed to (361) 387-4295.

 

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.

Grand Champion Swine

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.
