Come out to support these hard working youth.
We will accept absentee bids if you are not able to attend.

. Individuals and business are encouraged support the 4-H & FFA youth by bidding on and purchasing the animals.
The high quality of these animals make them attractive for commercial cutting due to superior chop and/or steak yields. 
Prior to the auction the animals will be weighed and graded.  This information will be available on a bidder's information sheet given out at the auction.   Buyers will be presented with a framed photograph and certificate of support. Buyers of Champion & Reserve animals will have their photo taken with the 4-H or FFA member and their animal.  Photos may be used as you wish.

If you cannot use the meat -  “Turn the Animal" at the current market value:
If you wish to support one or more of the young men and women involved in the Kitsap County 4-H & FFA market animal program and cannot use the meat, you can "turn" the animal back in at today’s market price.  You will pay the difference of your bid price per pound and the set market price per pound.   See the posted turn prices at the auction arena.

Split an animal with a friend or neighbor:  An animal may be purchased by more than one individual or business.
If you wish to split an animal the buyers must make their own arrangements and bid as one entity.
