New Livestock Sale Buyer Names & Addresses Needed by July 12

Remember that crazy skit the 4-H Staff did at Livestock Quality Assurance this spring? Well, it is time to turn in new livestock sale buyer names for the Waterford, County Fair and Barlow Sales! Please bring the name, mailing address and email of NEW BUYERS to the Extension Office by July 12 to have a new buyer’s packet mailed directly to them.

Previous Year Buyers and those registered at a sale will automatically receive a Buyer’s Packet in the mail.

Just a recap on contacting buyers:

  • Personal invitations with buyers are best
    • Face to Face Visits
    • Letters
    • Cards
    • Follow-up Phone Call
  • Make a list of potential buyers your family has contact with or does business with
    • Stores & businesses your family patronizes
    • Family members/friends of the family
    • Find out who has bought in the past
    • Invite at least TWO new buyers
  • Put together an invitation to the sale
    • Provide information about you, your parents and your project
    • Ask them to “support the sale” not to “purchase your animal”
    • Include pictures if possible
