This has a very specific purpose and it will be commensurately short. Today is the day for the Junior Livestock Sale at Grange Fair. It starts at 4 and runs until all animals (pigs, goats, sheep and cattle) are sold. The livestock sale is the culmination of the 4-H and FFA show week when almost every animal from the Grand Champion on down is auctioned. Often these animals are sold for above market price as it is really a way to reward the members for their efforts more than a way to economically fill your freezer but even that being said, it still generally beats the price you'll find in the store when you come down to it. If you are looking to buy or to just get in on a milestone in the Valley calendar each year, today’s sale is the way to go.
Of course, we'd love to get in on the action at the back end by processing your purchases so keep us in mind when you direct where the animal should go at check out. If you have a bidder number and/or want to purchase but can't be there, let us know, we'll help you work that out too. Call me at 814 359 6845 if you are interested.
