Junior Livestock Sale Will Cap Off 2009 Fair for Exhibitors

After braving the heat all week long to display their livestock, Scotland County 4-H and FFA members will be rewarded for their efforts on Saturday morning. The annual junior livestock show culminates the 2009 Scotland County Fair on Saturday morning, June 27th beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Exhibitors from the sheep, cattle and swine barns as well as the art hall will be allowed to sell two items to the public during the auction set to be held in the cattle barn.

Beef exhibits are scheduled to be sold first followed by sheep, wool, art hall projects and swine.

The livestock entries receive a floor price provided by local buyers. Bidders who do not wish to retain ownership of the animal, can simply pay a “premium” above the floor price, which goes to the exhibitor while the floor price is paid to the exhibitor by the sale barn, packer or marketer.

Typically transportation arrangements may be made at the fair for animals that are purchased for delivery to area lockers for processing.

Anyone unable to attend the event but still wishing to support the sale is encouraged to contact sale superintendents prior to Saturday to make arrangements to place bids. Buyers are also welcome to combine funds for the purchase of an animal, with all investors receiving recognition during and following the sale.

Superintendents for the 2009 fair are:

CATTLE – Randy Ward, Mark Mallett, Brian Kraus and Wayne Bulen;

SHEEP, GOATS & WOOL – Deny & Danette Clatt, Sarah McSparren and James Dalton;

SWINE – Bruce Childress, Chris Montgomery, Lila Spray and Kristy Eggleston-Wood;

ART HALL – Kristy Eggleston-Wood, Nancy McClamroch and Debbie Payne.
