4-H virtual livestock auction

Date(s) - Sunday, Aug 02, 2020


Bidding in the 4-H virtual livestock auction of Cornell Cooperative County in Niagara County is taking place now through through Aug. 7.
You may register to bid at any time by visiting www.bontragerauction.com.
You can support hard-working Niagara County 4-H youth while giving yourself the opportunity to fill your freezer with meat. Though the auction format is online this year, the high-quality market animals and meat brought to buyers is the same.
Local meat processors are on board with this plan, and have offered GUARANTEED butcher spots at their facilities for Niagara County 4-H auction animals, if you so choose to use them:
  • Hartland Abattoir of Gasport – ALL STEERS AND HOGS have pre-reserved butcher spots available in August.
  • Ed Roggen (Whitney Creek Farm) of Basom – ALL GOATS AND LAMBS have pre-reserved butcher spots available in August.
  • Britt’s Turkey Farm of Gasport – Meat Birds (processed and frozen prior to the auction, same process as in the past)

Please note the 4-H’er will transport/trailer the animal to the processor for you after the sale. It is the responsibility of the buyer to pick up meat from the butcher shop, once it is ready.

The Niagara County 4-H Auction Committee and Bontrager Auction Services will work to provide an efficient and easy online auction and buying process for you. The auction will end, closing out all bids on Friday, Aug. 7.
For more information, please contact Heidi Feltz hmk3@cornell.edu or Stacey Johnston ssh85@cornell.edu in the 4-H office.
