Healdsburg Future Farmers Country Fair Junior Livestock Auction - 2021 - Live Broadcast And Online Bidding

May 28th, 2021

Auction Details

Welcome to the 2021 HFFCF Livestock Auction

It's all for the kids!
A livestock project is one of the most valuable tools for teaching responsibility to any youth in society today. We sincerely believe that our buyers cannot make a better investment in the adults of tomorrow.

While many things are still being cancelled or modified due to state and local restrictions, we are trying our best to help encourage our exhibitors still have the ability to show off their hard work and be awarded for their dedication. However, we also understand the economic hardships facing many people in our own community, and we appreciate any support to get through this difficult time together.

The Junior Livestock Auction provides the opportunity for a return on the exhibitor's investment. Your support of this auction and the youth allows these programs to exist and recognizes these youth for a job well done. We welcome your participation and invite you to attend the 2021 Healdsburg Future Farmers Country Fair. While the auction this year is modified to host an online viewing at 1pm on May 28, 2021, we encourage you to attend our live auction, or if you prefer the comforts of your own home, the auction will be broadcast LIVE at 5pm Friday, May 28, 2021.

Unfortunately, due to Covid we will not host our annual buyers dinner beforehand.

We recommend all buyers pre-register at www.ez2bid.com for both online and live buyers. Upon registering you will need  to provide a driver’s license number and credit card, this ensures you’re an adult and no information will be shared or used, but is required to complete the registration process.  The pre-registration will provide us with the necessary instructions for processing and cut & wrap facilities. At this time we are unable to accommodate ANY special cut & wrap or processing options other than those provided by Bud’s, Sonoma County Meat Co. or Willowside Meats. Please note that all rabbit and poultry carcasses will be frozen prior to pick up. We will arrange for a pick up date and time and any animals left after that time will be donated at the discretion of the Livestock and Auction committee.

We cordially invite you to attend the auction and acknowledge that all our participants health & safety are a priority and encourage you to participate either live or virtually.

Please contact any of the following committee members if you have questions or need assistance in the registration or purchase.

Sincerely,

Katelyn Lagerquist

Livestock & Auction Committee Chair

 

HOW TO REGISTER

  • In order to bid and purchase a lot in the sale, you must register as a buyer.
  • Registration is available now and all the way through the auction. Click HERE to register.

HOW THE AUCTION WORKS

  • The combination live/online auction is hosted by EZ2BID.com.
  • Registration and details are available at www.ez2bid.com
  • The auction will take bids beginning Friday, May 28 at 5pm. Lots will be available to view prior at www.EZ2BID.com.
  • On Friday, May 28th the auction will begin at 5pm and proceed in Lot order. 
  • All animals have a starting minimum price. The starting price represents the bare minimum for each lot. Our goal is to raise much more than the bare minimum amount for each exhibitor, as they have much more invested than the bare minimum price.
  • Bids are being placed by the head.  What that means is that if you place a bid for $1,000, it is for the whole animal, not $1,000 per pound.
  • Bids will be fixed amounts (not traditional HFFCF bidding).  What does this mean?  If the bid is at $500 & you bid $1,000, the computer will automatically put you in at $1,000.
  • Upon being the winning bidder of a sale lot, you will receive an email OR phone call (sometime shortly after the close of auction) to indicate whether you want your lot to be custom harvest or consigned to resale.  Those emails must be returned no later than 1 pm on Saturday, May 29th.  Otherwise, the animal will be consigned to resale.
  • Multiple Buyers:  If you have multiple buyers, you can indicate so at the time of the phone call or fair email correspondence. Upon billing each party will receive their own invoice.  Please contact the livestock & Auction Committee chair or co-Chair to add buyers to the invoice prior to it being processed and sent out.
  • Payment is due upon receipt of your official mailed HFFCF invoice. The invoice can be paid over the phone with a credit card by calling 707-431-0165, but an administrative fee of 2% will apply. If you prefer to mail a check please mail to: P.O. Box 763, Healdsburg, CA 95448.

Minimum Starting Bids:
Steers: $3,000.00
Lambs: $1,000.00
Goats: $600.00
Hogs: $1,000.00

Rabbits/Poultry: $500.00

WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS AS A BUYER?

  • The winning bidder of each lot will have the choice of (1) CUSTOM PROCESSED or (2) RESELLING THE ANIMAL. Details of each option are as follows:

Option 1: CUSTOM PROCESSED

  • The animal will be processed, inspected and delivered to one of the butcher shops in the area. You will need to indicate your preference of butcher shops and make arrangements with them for cutting instructions. Any animal left over 60 days at a butcher shop may be disposed of at the discretion of that shop. If you purchase a custom processed animal, an additional processing fee applies and will be reflected on your invoice from the fair. You are also responsible for the cut and wrap fee to be paid to the butcher shop when you pick the animal up. 

Option 2: RESELLING THE ANIMAL

  • Animals that are bought by individuals who do not desire the meat will be resold at market price to the packer for a set per pound price and that amount is then subtracted from the buyer's bill by the fair. 

Example: Steer weighs 1250lbs. Resale Price is $.80/lb. which equals $1,000
Your Winning Bid Price is $4,000;
The difference is $3,000, which is the amount that you will be responsible for paying.

  • Resale Prices: The resale amounts are calculated by the weight of the animal. The official certified weight will be listed on each lot.

THERE IS NO LIVE ANIMAL PICK-UP ON BEEF, GOATS, SHEEP, SWINE, RABBITS OR POULTRY.
