MCFA delays auction

Posted

The Madison County Fair Association released all projects back to their exhibitors last week after further postponing their auctions due to COVID-19, but still hope to hold them in some facet.

“It is our strong desire to have a live auction combine with a buyer appreciation dinner where we could hand out banners and buckles to the winners of the shows, announce the queen’s court, and display our ag mechanics projects,” said Karl Radde in a March 27 press release. “Any auction at this point will be a prize money only auction. The bid price will not be for the actual purchase of the animal. We plan to show a picture of the project (pictures of all projects were taken during the show) for each lot as each exhibitor sells in the live auction.  The buyer would not receive the animal except in the case of halter or penned heifers.”

Radde also stated that, if a live auction could not be held in a reasonable timeframe, an online auction may be used as an alternative.

The projects that qualified for the FCS auction will still be sold at auction as normal. Craft projects and canned items must be kept and food items will be prepared before the auction. This will apply whether we have a live auction or if circumstances cause us to have an online auction.

Radde congratulated all exhibitors who participated in the fair despite the unfavorable circumstances and thanked all those who made the “Drive Through Fair” possible.
