2020 Jr. Livestock & Metal Fab Online Auction - Buyer Information

Start Time: 9/4/20 at 3pm Closes: 9/6/20 at 6pm


Welcome to the 2020 Lake County Fair Junior Livestock & Metal Fabrication Auction. We have a superior line up of Market Steers, Market Hogs, Market Lambs, Market Goats and Rabbit Meat Pens (3 rabbits per pen). Lake County youth work year-round to bring top of the line beef, pork, lamb, rabbit and goat products to you, the consumer. The livestock sale is the finale to all their hard work. This year we have also opened bidding for metal fabrication projects.

You, the buyer, are an essential part to the completion of their project. The sale offers an opportunity to support and encourage the community’s youth, and your purchase will support the youth’s efforts in establishing a small-scale agribusiness operation. Not only do members learn business and marketing skills they also learn many life skills such as responsibility and teamwork.

We appreciate the support of our 2019 buyers and would like to recognize our Lake County community for the continued support.

Lake County Fair Junior Livestock & Metal Fab, Auction is a Terminal Sale. If bidding on an animal, the winning bidder will be responsible to choose one of 3 options for disposition of the animal.

SALE FORMAT: Lake County Fair Junior Livestock will determine the starting price per pound, which will be multiplied by the animal weight. This results in the base price per head ("floor price"), which will be listed in the sale catalog for each animal. The auction of the animal will begin at this price. Any amount buyers bid over that amount will be considered the “premium”. The total of the floor price plus the premium amount bid is the amount the 4-H/FFA member receives.

BUYERS have THREE OPTIONS when purchasing/donating money toward the 4-H or FFA member's project.

1. Purchase - Pay the full price and have the animal sent to one of three meat locker companies for cut & wrap. Additional packaging fees are due to the respective Locker. (DISPOSITION CHOICE: Bud’s Meats, Sonoma Meat Co., or Willowside Meat.

2. Resale- In this case the buyer will pay the difference of the resale price and the final bid. Resale prices will be posted on the Lake County Fair web page prior to sale. RESALE is for Hogs, Lambs and Goats ONLY. (DISPOSITION CHOICE = BUYBACK)

3. Donation - (Add-On) Any amount can be added to a lot (any specific kid you choose).
