FOUR WAYS TO BUY

(1) Add On

This type of buying is where the buyer will add on what ever amount of money they deemed fit for that animal.

(2) Premium Buyer

Buyer would buy the premium of the animal.  Animal would go to floor bid and buyer would get credit for the purchase of the animal.

Example:  Market lamb weighed 100 lbs. and the floor price is $.70 per lb. Buyer bids lamb for $1.00 per lb. Lamb sold for $1.00; Buyer would each pay for total of $100.  The $100 would go to the exhibitor and buyer would receive credit for buying the lamb.

(3) Buying Outright

Buyer would buy the animal and pay the total cost to the exhibitor.  Buyer would take the animal.  Buyer could make prior arrangements for slaughter and packaging at the local packing plant to his (buyer’s) specifications;

Example:  Lamb sold for $1.00; Buyers A, B, C and D would each pay $25, making for total of $100.  The $100 would go to the exhibitor and all of the buyers would receive credit for buying the lamb, OR, this could work on the same principle as the Booster Buying, where more than one individual would go together to make up the difference from the floor buyer’s price.

(4) Consolidated Buyers

This would be where several buyers would put their money together to purchase an animal and all of them would receive credit for buying the animal, and decide among themselves how to divide the animal.

Example:  Lamb sold for $1.00; Buyers A, B, C and D would each pay $25, making for total of $100.  The $100 would go to the exhibitor and all of the buyers would receive credit for buying the lamb, OR, this could work on the same principle as the Booster Buying, where more than one individual would go together to make up the difference from the floor buyer’s price.

FOUR WAYS TO PARTICIPATE

(1) Attend yourself

By all means, if you can, attend the sales in person; The excitement of the event, the drama of the auctioneer’s cry, combine to create an unforgettable scene.  Auction committee men and ring men will be on hand to assist.

(2) Proxy

If you, your firm or organization, cannot attend the sale but wish to participate, you can do so by proxy, simply download the add on form and return it to Julia Strnad 467 W. 80th St S, Wellington, KS. 67152 or contact her at 620-863-2471 or email @ scjrla@gmail.com.

(3) Buyer Club

Potential buyers make small dollar donations of any amount prior to the sale which is pooled together and later used to purchase animals during the sale.  The sales committee will be doing the actual buying, but the credit will go to the buyer’s club. If you are interested in this method of participation, contact the us at scjrla@gmail.com.

(4) Bid online

This year we have contracted with DVAuction for you to be able to bid online at the same time as the auction.  We encourage you to register for the auction at www.dvauction.com under "create new account" tab.  Apply for bidding by clicking "apply for bidding" in the upper left corner of your scree, at least 24 hours prior to the auction.  We look forward to doingn this along with the live auction this year, so that the youth are being supported during this crazy covid-19 life that we have right now.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the businesses that came and supported the youth of Sumner County, including the Sumner County Banks.  With their help we are able to provide another avenue for the kids to get bids for their hard work.  A big thank you also goes out to all of you that helped make this year's auction such a success. We look forward to working on new ideas for next year's auction. Above is a list of this year's auction buyers.

The Auction is a Video Auction held in the Caldwell Community Building.  This year, due to the Covid-19 concerns, we will also have the ability to bid online at the same time as the auction.  DVAuction has been contracted to do the auction where you are able to bid online while in the comfort of your home.  We encourage you to register for the auction at www.dvauction.com under "create new account" tab.  Apply for bidding by clicking "apply for bidding" in the upper left corner of your screen, at least 24 hours prior to the auction.
