THIS IS A TERMINAL SALE FOR ALL SPECIES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF RABBITS, WHICH THE BUYER CAN REQUEST TO TAKE HOME LIVE. All large animals must be designated "Resale" or "Custom Process". No live animal pick-up of auction animals allowed. NO EXCEPTIONS. Resale & Custom Custom Process & Return: The Solano County Fair has made arrangements for the animals to be sent to a federally inspected USDA processing facility for harvest. After processing, the carcass will be delivered to your choice of one of these butcher shops: Butcher Shops: Gates Meat Company - Vacaville - 707-448-3867 Browns Valley Meat - Napa - 707-253-2480 You must make arrangements with the butcher shop for cut & wrap instructions & pay the butcher shop directly for those charges. Custom harvesting fees that will be added to your BidCal Invoice: Beef - $220 Hogs - $55 Lambs - $52 Goats - $55 Resale: The animal is consigned back for Resale. Animals that are bought by individuals who do not desire the meat will be resold at market price. You will be billed for the difference between the market price and your bill. Example: Hog weighs 250 lbs., Resale price (market rate) = $.20 ($50), bid = $1000; difference= $950 (your share). This may be done for any specie. Resale prices will be posted on Friday, June 19th. Resale Prices Resale amounts are calculated by the weight of the animal. Resale value is capped at certain weights for each species. Example: If you purchase a Lamb and it weights 160 lbs, you will only receive a resale price credit for up to 150 lbs. Beef - $1.00 (Resale pay up to 1,300 lbs) Hogs - $. 60 (Resale pay up to 300 lbs) Lambs - $. 80 (Resale pay up to 150 lbs) Goats - $ 2.70 (Resale pay up to 105 lbs) Rabbits - $5 per rabbit Carefully consider disposition of your purchase.
