  3. Livestock checks will be mailed to Sellers (exhibitors) on the last Sat- urday of September for those sellers whose buyers have paid. Begin- ning in October, all other monies will be mailed to the exhibitor when their buyer(s) make payment to the Sales committee.
  4. Only 4-H and FFA members may sell market livestock at the sales.
  5. All Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion animals must sell in their respective sale and will go to harvest through the designation of the Sale Committee.
