Dear Potential Livestock Buyer:
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend our 2022 Martin County Youth Livestock Buyer’s social and auction. The social will be held on February 19, 2022 at 3:00 in Building “G”. The steer auction will start at 5:00pm in the Arena with the swine auction immediately to follow.
Enclosed you will find a registration form. To avoid lines at the gate please return the registration form either by mail or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org. You and your guest will have reserved parking and free entry onto the fairgrounds with proof of registration (please look for an email). The parking and entrance to the fair will be at the North end of the grounds. Buyer’s packets will only be assigned to buyers who pre-register, even if you are a previous buyer.
Our 4-H and FFA youth are working towards their future through their animal projects. This will be your opportunity to support these young people by purchasing one of these fine animals. There are several ways to purchase, either by you, as a business or as a partnership or group. Remember, your purchase is a tax-deductible donation. We do ask that you pay for your purchase on sale night. We accept all major Credit Cards, Checks, or Cash. Please note that for any purchases made by credit card a 3% fee will be applied.
Arrangements have been made with Cut Rite Outback to handle the processing and packaging of your pork and or beef. Enclosed is a cut and wrap form for your convenience. The forms must be turned in at the end of the sale as the forms must go on the truck the Sunday morning after sale, otherwise, standard cut will be assigned. You as the buyer will be responsible for all fees incurred for the cut and wrap of the purchased animal. The processing fee will be $750 for steer and $200 for hogs.
Please RSVP to the Martin County Fair Office as soon as possible, but no later than 5:00 PM on Friday, February 18, 2022. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us. Thank you for you for supporting our youth.
Bridget Howe & Dennis Driggers
