Weigh-In Guidelines

As this is not a traditional live show and sale, weight will be handled in the following manner:
  1. Exhibitors will submit the weight of their market animal September 7 - 18, 2020 at the same time they submit their video entry.
  2. The weight submitted needs to represent the actual weight of your animal at the time of video submission (even if it is under the minimum weight requirements). The weight at the time of the video will be used to place each entry in the proper weight class.
    Example: if you have a goat that should weigh 60 pounds minimum but only weighs 50 pounds at video submission, be sure to enter 50 lbs. as its weight. It will not be disqualified for judging purposes but must weigh 60 pounds on drop off date to be eligible to have been sold.
  3. Buyers will be purchasing the animal by the lot (or by the head). The weight provided for the sale is for reference purposes.
  4. It is imperative that exhibitors continue to feed and care for their animals leading up to drop off to meet the expectations of potential buyers. Buyers will be reminded of the average daily gain of each species so they can estimate the final weight of the animal they want to purchase online. Remember: we want our buyers to return next year
  5. The livestock will be weighed at drop off and are required to meet the guidelines. The weight ranges for market animals are established by the processors.
    • Market Beef: 1000 - 1450 lbs.
    • Open Heifers: Any Weight
    • Bred Heifers: 901 lbs. and Over
    • Market Swine: 210 - 280 lbs.
    • Market Sheep: 100 - 165 lbs.
    • Market Goats: 60 - 125 lbs.
    • Market Rabbit Pen/Fryers: See ARBA requirements
    • Market Poultry Pens: minimum weight 3 lbs. and maximum weight 8 lbs.
    • Market Turkeys: minimum 14 lbs.
  6. Animals that do not meet the weight requirements at drop off will be disqualified. The animal will be loaded back on the trailer, sent home, and returned to the exhibitor; the animal will be deemed NOT SOLD and the buyer will not be charged.
  7. At drop off, each animal will be vet checked and will be determined whether or not the animal is market ready by a third party. Any animal that does not pass a vet check or is deemed not market ready will be immediately loaded back onto the trailer, sent home, and returned to the exhibitor; the animal will be deemed NOT SOLD and the buyer will not be charged.
