Livestock, Hay, Poultry & Rabbit Sale for June 3rd:

We wanted to provide an update to all our Wednesday Customers.  The Livestock & Hay Sale for June 3rd will proceed but will do so with the same restrictions and requests from us.  As most are aware, we, as well as everyone else in the United States, are dealing with less than ideal circumstances. Please bear with us and abide by the restrictions and rules we have set forth. 

This week we will be adding the Poultry and Rabbit Sale to the Livestock & Hay Sale. However, the Wednesday – Produce, Eggs & Misc. Goods Auction (and anything else sold in this area) will continue to be closed. 

Hay Sale:  Will be held on the west side of the Mt Hope Event Center parking lot.  All consignors of hay will need to stay outside the Auction Buildings.  Though our Restrooms will be available, we ask that you do not proceed further into any of the buildings.  Consignors are asked to park 12’ apart and refrain from gathering or mingling.  We will have further instructions on the day of the sale. 

Livestock Consignors:  We ask that you drop off your animals and proceed off the property (believe us, we hate to have this rule in effect, but this is how it is for now).  We will process the checks that day, and if you need it, we will work out a way to get your check to you on the day of the sale, otherwise we will mail them out Thursday. 

Livestock Buyers:  We will restrict Auction Barn entry to Buyers only.  Normal Wednesday Livestock Auction Buyers and other perspective buyers of livestock will be permitted in the barn.   No public person for the purpose of watching the sale will be permitted.  Please respect this policy so that we can continue with our Auction. 

Poultry & Rabbit Buyers:  If possible, we ask that you wear a face covering in this Sale. We ask that Sellers drop off their consignments and leave, just as they do with Livestock.

We ask that the public respect our requests of not coming into the Sale Rings at this time.  If you as a seller cannot abide by our requests, we kindly ask that you refrain from sending Livestock in until all restrictions and bans are lifted.
