Palouse Empire Junior Market Stock Sale
Sale Date: Saturday, September 7, 2019, at 11:30 a.m.
Buy an Animal for your Freezer:
You may bid on an animal of your choice at the sale or have someone else bid on it for you. (Volunteers are available – contact anyone in the Stock Sale Committee for details). Custom slaughtering services are available to take delivery of the animal at the sale for you. You will be responsible for the cost of processing the animal in addition to the auction bid. Many people purchase animal together and share it with family and friends.
Buy an Animal Turn it to The Packer:
Many people want to support youth showmen but may not need the locker meat. You can still bid on an animal above the floor price (determined in advance) of the packer. If you are the successful bidder, you turn the animal to the packer and simply pay the difference between the floor price and your bid. If you are having someone bid for you, ask the sale floor price and the approximate weight of the animal you are interested in. Since the cost of production is often close to or about the floor price, this personal contribution is a wonderful way of rewarding the hundreds of hours of work and preparation these young livestock producers have invested in their projects.

- All purchase must be made the day of the sale, unless other arrangements have been made with the sales clerk prior to the start of the sale.
