The Southern Virginia Meat Goat Association is having a meat goat consignment sale on Friday, October 14, 2014. The sale starts at 5:30 p.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m. The sale will be held at the Halifax County Agricultural Marketing Center, 1001 Farmway Lane (Route 922), Halifax, VA 24558.
This sale is for good quality kids and lambs (40 lbs — 70 lbs). Kids and lambs will be sold by the pound at a premium price. The price will be announced five days prior to sale.
Commission Fees: $1 per head for SVMGA members. $5 per head for non-members. You can join SVMGA at the sale and pay the member fee. For more info about membership go to the “About” page on this website.
To include your goats in the sale, or to get more information, call Debbie Duffer at 434-470-0550 or 434-735-8759. Animals must be registered on or before November 4, 2014.
Registering your animals prior to the sale is very important. Knowing the quantity of animals before the sale allows the buyer to establish fair pricing and secure adequate transportation. Animals not pre-registered prior to the sale may be accepted, but ONLY as space and the buyer permits.
Registration prior to the sale allows SVMGA to obtain the best pricing and the buyer to have adequate transportation. In an effort to avoid this problem, SVMGA has implemented a $10 fee for anyone who is late registering for a sale. This fee is not intended to discourage anyone from selling but rather to help the organization better serve its members.
All animals must have a scrapie tag and be in good health. Yearling does, bucks, culls and sheep will be accepted but with separate pricing. SVMGA reserves the right to reject any animal.
