Healdsburg Future Farmers Country Fair 4-H And FFA Livestock Auction
WELCOME TO THE 2020 ONLINE LIVESTOCK AUCTION
HEALDSBURG FUTURE FARMERS COUNTRY FAIR
The auction will be different this year than in years past. Due to a statewide virus, we were forced to cancel our livestock show and reach for an ONLINE livestock auction. While many things are being cancelled due to state and local restrictions we are trying, our best to help many of our exhibitors still have the pride and ability to show off their hard work. We are hoping for continued community support to alleviate these hard times for our exhibitors. However, we also understand the economic hardships facing many of our local buyers and businesses, and we appreciate any support to get through this difficult time together.
TWO WAYS TO BUY
CUSTOM: Buyer pays full price. Purchased animals will be sent for slaughter, and then returned to either Bud’s Custom Meats, Willowside Meats, or Sonoma County Meat Company. You MUST indicate which facility you prefer on your purchase. Slaughtering charges will be added to your HFFCF invoice as follows:
Beef - $300 Swine - $45 Lambs - $50 Goats - $53 Rabbits - $36. The processing plant cannot supply whole carcasses.
RESALE: Buyer pays the difference between bid price and support price. The Fair Board pays the support price. Below are the support prices: (TO BE UPDATED 1-2 DAYS PRIOR TO AUCTION)
