WAYS TO SUPPORT:
FILL THE FREEZER - Buyers obtain quality beef, lamb, pork, goat, turkey, chicken, and rabbit at an attractive price. A quality animal at the auction may actually cost you less than buying your meat at the supermarket. Businesses can use their purchases for employee barbeques, family get-togethers, client gifts, or just good home eating.
PACKERS BID - Market price will be established the night of the sale by a packer’s bid. If you do not want the meat, you may sell the animal you purchased to the packer. The amount you paid over market price is tax deductible as advertisement.
Example Packer Bid – Steer = $.60/lb. (hypothetical)
Your Bid of $2.50/lb. X 1000 lbs. = $2,500
Packer Bid of $ .60/lb. X 1000 lbs. = $600
TAX DEDUCTIBLE AMOUNT = $1,900.00
DONATION—If you do not want the meat, you may also choose to donate it to someone else for a fundraiser, needy family, or a local food pantry.
ADD-ONS - It's extremely expensive to raise an animal to its best level. Feed alone can 'break the bank.' Anyone can Add-on to a purchase price of an animal. Add-ons ensure the 4-H'er makes the investment back and is able to compete next year with a quality animal. As a supporter of 4-H, you have the opportunity to Add-on to the purchase price of any or every animal as well as any or every 4-H member as a donation and reward. You may do this at any time during the Auction.

JOIN THE BUYERS CLUB - The Buyers Club allows you to support the kids without having to attend the fair, or you can attend the Fair and learn the process. Monies are pooled together to purchase an animal that may not be purchased otherwise.
