In conjunction with our live auction, this year’s junior livestock sale will be hosted by StockShowAuctions.com, the first and largest online premium sale platform. Unlike other platforms, StockShowAuctions.com is dedicated to the premium sale, which allows the site to offer our exhibitors detailed and specific information to assure success in the sale of their project.
To ensure a smooth process we are sending you the step by step process of what you should do to prepare for the sale.
1) Visit StockShowAuctions.com and visit the “EXHIBITORS” page. On this page take the time to watch the instructional video to familiarize yourself with the process of loading your project onto the platform.
a. On the same page you will see the “EXHIBITOR INSTRUCTIONS” button. After watching the video click on the “EXHIBITOR INSTRUCTIONS” button and familiarize yourself with the printable instructions so you will know where to find answers when its time to begin uploading.
b. Additionally, on the “EXHIBITORS” page you will find the “SALES TIPS” button. It will prove profitable if you review this page and begin to plan how and to whom you will market your project for the highest return.
c. Like StockShowAuctions.com facebook page at Facebook.com/StockShowAuctions as they will post important sale information and exhibitor tips from time to time.
2) The show committee requests that you begin making your accounts and placing your projects on StockShowAuctions.com from Now to Sunday January 3rd. Should you have any difficulties creating your account or loading your project feel free to contact StockShowAuctions.com through their help chat line on the page.
This is by no means mandatory. We are just trying to provide as many tools as we can for you to have a profitable project in as safe a way as possible. If you have any questions, please reach out to me, or your advisors.

BECOMING AN AUCTION BUYER THIS YEAR
2021 Auction Buyers
Exhibitors have to find and purchase a market show animal. Market Show animals and the feed purchased is expensive. They are responsible for feeding, caring and exercising the animal to fit for show. A lot of time and money goes into each one of these animals and many purchase more than one animal. Erath Co Junior Livestock Show rules only allow one animal per exhibitor to be sold in the premium sale. The project, which typically involves the family or assistance, promotes individual character, morals and teaches responsibility. The Premium money from the sale goes to pay offset costs of the animal and feed. Exhibitors will save the extra money to help pay for college. This program does not offer scholarships. The exhibitors keep the animal from the Premium Sale, and many take the animal on to compete in the Texas major shows.

Exhibitors find and purchase a high-quality replacement heifer to be sold at the Erath Co Junior Livestock show. These high-quality dairy heifers will fit any dairy production facility. The exhibitor is responsible for not only feeding and maintaining the heifer, but they also have to train it to lead and show in the ring. Erath Co Junior Livestock Show rules only allow one animal per exhibitor to be sold in the premium sale. The project, which typically involves the family or assistance, promotes individual character, morals and teaches responsibility. Money from the sale goes to pay for the animal and the costs in raising that animal. Dairy heifers over 2 yrs. of age must be pregnant and all must have sound udders. At the Dairy Sale, the buyer has the option of keeping the dairy heifer or they can return it back to the exhibitor.
