In recent years the sale has animals in the sale or donate to Sale Chairman 4-H and FFA members from our local communities will be exhibiting their livestock projects during the upcoming Hidalgo County Fair. Financial investment and many months of hard work have gone into raising the pigs, lambs and steers that can be seen in the show ring on Fri- day morning, August 27. Some of these youngsters will be successful in placing their animal in the sale, others will not. It is the support of the commu- nity through your bidding on the animals during the sale and mak- ing donations toward both sale and non-sale exhibitors that as- sists in making their projects a real Success. All are welcome to bid indi- vidually or you might consider tearhing up with a friend and bid- ding on an animal. It's not too late to contribute to the Hidalgo County Buyer's Pool. All you need to do is contact Randy and/ or Sheila Massey, chairmen of the pool, or other fair officials and let them know what you would like to donate. The goal of the Hidalgo County Buyer's Pool is to bump bids up on animals at the Live- stock Sale that aren't receiving -much bidding so they will all bring close to the sale average. As most auctions go, sometimes a bump ends up buying that ani- been strong. The strength of the sale has been greatly assisted by the Buyer's Pool. The 2010 Buyer's Pool needs more donors in order to as- sist at the level it has in previous years. This is a request to all the folks for Hidalgo County to con- sider doing what you can to help us build up the fund. Pool dona- tions have been received in the varying amount. Any amount is accepted and very much appreci- ated. No amount is too small or too large. If you bid on your own or by teaming up with a friend, you have the option of paying the full price or re-selling to the packer, then only the bid less packer pay- ment is owed by you. If the buyer wishes not to re-sell, then the auc- tion bid .is paid and the buyer is free to process, donate or take home the animal. What better way to put fresh quality meat in your freezer fGr the winter months ahead. All procee'ds from the sales go directly to t~e 4-H and FFA youth except for a small amount that is taken out to assist in pay- ing for buyer's appreciation din- ners and transportation of the ani- mals to market. Please consider co~aing out to the fair. Watch the yotlh show their animals on Friday rrorning, then come back on Satur~y af- ternoon, August 28, and b~d on both the sale and non-sale exhibi- tors. Your help is greatly needed and will be sincerely appreciated. Show them you care. These young individuals are the pride of our communities. They work hard. stay out of trouble and are developing into responsible, pro- ductive young people who will be the future leaders of our na- tion. If you would like to take part in this endeavor, please contact any fair board member, parent or youngster at the fair. Hope to see you there! Come out and enjoy the Hidalgo County Fair! You can contact Sheila Massey at- 575-534-7553. Give me a call and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have regard- ing the sale.
