Rock County Meat Animal Sale Supporters:
The 4-H and FFA youth from Rock County will offer swine, beef and lamb meat animal projects for sale. Your support of the Rock County 4-H Fair Meat Animal Sale allows exhibitors to reinvest in livestock and fund their college education goals. Through participation in livestock projects, Rock County 4-H Fair exhibitors gain leadership skills, participate in financial planning and develop responsibility.
You might be wondering what your options are once you purchase an animal. Buyers have the option to have the animal processed or immediately resell the animal. The animal resale program encourages involvement in the sale and support of the exhibitors at a fraction of the total cost of an animal. Buyers who resale only pay the difference between the stated resale price and the auction purchase price.
Example: A buyer purchases a 1200 lb. steer at the sale for $1.40/lb. and decides to resale it. The announced resale price is $1.10/lb.
Purchase 1200 lb. steer @ $1.40/lb. = $1680.00
Resale 1200 lb. steer @ $1.10/lb. -$1320.00
Buyer payout at sale $ 360.00
We thank you in advance for investing in the lives of 4-H and FFA livestock exhibitors. We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Rock County 4-H Fair.
