Important Saturday Consignment Sale Update

If you plan to bring goats to this Saturday’s consignment sale, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you register your goats immediately.  Knowing the quantity of animals before the sale allows the buyer to establish fair pricing and secure adequate transportation.  Animals not registered with Lean Brown prior to the sale may be accepted, but ONLY as space and the buyer permits.

So far, only three sellers have registered goats for the sale.  If more goats are not registered very soon, the sale may have to be rescheduled.

If you have goats for sale, please register them with Leah Brown at the Ag Center NOW.

Information about the sale, including a link to the registration form, follows:

The Southern Virginia Meat Goat Association is having a meat goat consignment sale on February 16, 2013. The sale starts at 8:00 A.M. and ends at 11:00 A.M.  The sale will be held at the Halifax County Agricultural Marketing Center, 1001 Farmway Lane (Route 922), Halifax, VA 24558.

Registering your animals with Leah Brown 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 registered with Lean Brown prior to the sale may be accepted, but ONLY as space and the buyer permits.

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.

    If we register are we obligated to sell? I was going to wait until I saw the price.
