AgFest 2020 Online Auction – Intent to Sell

I hereby acknowledge and agree to abide by the following: 

  1. The guidebook was read, all rules will be followed and ethical practices will be used by the exhibitor.
  2. AgFest 2020 Online Auction is a terminal sale.
  3. By uploading this video, I agree to sell the animal in the AgFest online sale.
  4. Any video found to be edited or altered will result in the animal being disqualified from the show and sale.
  5. Purebred breeding animals must be accompanied with an upload of a photo of registration papers for purebreds and they must be in the exhibitor’s name.  Failure to provide the registration paperwork and/or if paperwork is not in the exhibitor’s name, will result in the animal being disqualified.
  6. Exhibitors of grade or unregistered breeding animals must provide a copy of a bill of sale in the exhibitors name OR a statement that validates the animal was bred by the exhibitor. Copies of the bill(s) of sale can be emailed to agfestlvstk@gmail.com. Failure to provide the bill of sale will result in the animal being disqualified from the virtual show.
  7. By uploading this video, I agree to deliver the animal to the AgFest drop-off, so the animal can go to the processor, and then from there to the buyer.
  8. If an exhibitor enters a market animal in the virtual show by uploading a video and then pulls that animal from the AgFest online sale and/or the exhibitor fails to deliver the livestock project to the AgFest drop-off, the exhibitor will be subject to a $300 fee and possible disciplinary action.
  9. The project sold and any add-ons attached to the sale of the animal are subject to a 6% commission fee.
  10. Upon market animal drop-off, the animal will be evaluated for market readiness, will be health checked, and weighed.  
  11. If the market animal is not deemed market ready, the animal will be returned to the exhibitor and the buyer will not be charged.
  12. If the market animal does not pass a health check, the animal will be returned to the exhibitor and the buyer will not be charged.
  13. If the market animal does not meet minimum weight standards, the animal will be returned to the exhibitor and the buyer will not be charged.
  14. If a swine weighs over the maximum weight at the time of drop-off, the animal will be returned to the exhibitor and the buyer will not be charged.
  15. Dairy replacement heifers that do not show a positive pregnancy test and who do not provide the correct paperwork for the brand inspector will not sell.  
  16. If a dairy replacement heifer calves before the video is submitted, then the heifer is not eligible to show and sell.  However, if the heifer calves after the video submission, the heifer must sell with the calf.
  17. Ag mechanics projects will need to be delivered to the buyer after the sale.  After the sale, the exhibitor will be provided a “Delivered to Buyer Statement” to be returned to AgFest by June 30th in order to receive payment.
  18. Animals entered by an exhibitor must fall within ownership deadlines. It is the responsibility of all 4-H Leaders, FFA Advisors, and Grange to verify that the animals entered by their members follow AgFest rules and deadlines for ownership. If it is found that these rules and deadlines were not followed, that entries and any paperwork was falsified, or the animal was entered under false pretenses, the exhibitor will lose the privilege of participating in AgFest the following 3 years, and must return any/all awards/premiums earned immediately. Furthermore, if it is found that the adult leader/advisor knowingly participated in the falsification, AgFest will review the future of the club or chapter’s participation in AgFest
