Buyers, whether you are new to AgFest or a seasoned pro at supporting the exhibitors, we are changing things up a little this year with our Auction. We want to give the exhibitors the best platform for selling their projects and have chosen a LIVE / SIMULCAST Auction. This gives you the option of attending the live auction or bidding in the comfort of your home or office on your laptop or computer. We will have approximately 29 Dairy Replacement Heifers, 64 Market Beef, 118 Market Sheep, 105 Market Goats, 45 Market Rabbits, 40 Poultry and 305 Market Swine, and hopefully a few Ag Mechanic Projects as well.
We will have our typical LIVE AUCTION but will also broadcast it in LIVE TIME online through
REPLACEMENT HEIFER AUCTION will be Saturday, June 12th at 7:00 PM
LIVESTOCK AUCTION will be Saturday, June 19th starting at 9:00 AM

SWINE AUCTION will be Saturday June 19th starting at 9:30 am
All auctions will be held at the Stockton Fairgrounds – 1658 S. Airport Way, Stockton, CA
For those who feel comfortable in attending our LIVE Auction (with Covid restrictions in place), registration of buyers at the fairgrounds will start 2 hours before the start of the Auction. Auction rings will be in the traditional locations, with the Replacement Heifers, Beef, Sheep, Goats, Ag Mechanics, Rabbits and Poultry at the Elmer & Diana Muller Sheep Ring and Swine at the Dave Luis Swine Arena.
Attending LIVE, you will use your BIDDER NUMBER to bid on the projects just as you did in the past. Replacement Heifers (sold by the head) are sold live and you may take the animal after the sale or make arrangements with the exhibitor for delivery. All other animals are sold terminal. Rabbits and Poultry (sold by the head) will all be CUSTOM and the exhibitor will delivery our fresh purchase to you on Sunday, June 19th (They will contact you for delivery). Beef, Sheep, Goats and Swine (sold by the pound) may be CUSTOM (for your cut and wrap choice) or RESALE (you pay the price between market and your bid). All CUSTOM choices will be charged the harvest fee on your AgFest statement; you will be directly responsible for your CUT & WRAP fees. *Please see brochure for more information. You may choose to be BILLED for your purchases, but all invoices are due by June 30th. We will accept Cash, Checks or Credit Cards with a 3% fee. All Credit Card purchases after June 30th will incur a 5% fee.
