Buyers Letters and Information 2020
To: All Prospective Stark County Junior Fair Livestock Auction Buyers
Stark County Fair is fast approaching and along with that the Junior Fair Livestock Shows and Auction. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, there are many changes for this year. This year, the Stark County Fair will be having Junior Fair only. Junior Fair is closed to General public. There is also a major change in the format of the Junior Fair Livestock Auction. We will have an entire new format and platform. The Auction will be online only. The Wendt Group at juniorfairauctions.com will be providing us a platform that the Junior Fair Exhibitors will be able to sell their market project species. The sale will start Wednesday September 2nd, 2020 at Noon and end on Friday September 4th at 9:00 PM.
All buyers will need to register prior to the Auction to be able to bid online. We recommend that you register early and test out your username and password to ensure you can login and please keep them safe. The Wendt Group has provided a YouTube video to show you the easy process of registering to bid online. You can access that video at (control and click on this link) https://youtu.be/weIOSQARlIc. The next video we recommend is a video that the Wendt Group has put together to show how to setup auction favorites and that video can be accessed here at (control and click) https://youtu.be/Ps5_PAAotOs. Another major change this year is that all species will be sold by head or pen. No species will be sold by the pound this year on the new platform. We will also have Multi buyers bidding with a new format this year. More information in following sheets.
We encourage you to take a few moments to go to juniorfairauctions.com and spend some time setting up your username and password and familiarize yourself with the website. At this point in time, we do not have an exact website address for the Stark County Junior Fair Livestock Auction, but the Auction will be able to be found from the juniorfairauctions.com homepage once it is live on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020 at 12:00 PM.
Our Junior Fair participants have been working hard this entire year and are continuing to do so in these ever changing, challenging, and evolving times. We are immensely proud of the work that they have done and are looking forward to seeing their success at the fair. We appreciate your continued support of their hard work and dedication. We know that this year will look very different from the past, but the one thing that is still the same is that our Junior Fair participants have the same determination, drive and enthusiasm to continue to do their very best. Your support will help them succeed and we thank you for that.
Included with this letter is an information pack that is designed to answer as many questions as we could anticipate. We expect there to be more questions and would love to answer them for you. You may contact Beth Eicher at (330) 904-8719 or Gail Oberlin at (330) 323-5382 with these questions or any animal committee member.
