Saturday November 18, 1:00pm
Magnolia Center (Southern Mississippi Fair Grounds)
Laurel, MS

The Second Annual Sale of the PCRBA will be held at the Magnolia Center, Laurel, MS starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday November 18, 2006.  

1.     Cattle and sheep may be delivered to the sale beginning at 4:00 p.m.  Friday November 17. All stock must be in the barn by 10:00 a.m. Saturday. Stock may be viewed from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

2.     A $25.00 per head for cattle and a $10.00 per head consignment fee for sheep will be required in order to sell your cattle and sheep. This fee is due no later than 31 October. All entries past this date will be rejected. The consignment fee will be refunded at the time of sale unless you do not bring your consigned livestock. It will not be refunded if you do not bring your stock; no exceptions. The purpose of the fee is to help fund and cover the expense of the sale.

3.     All cattle and sheep are subject to inspection by the PCRBA Board of Directors and are subject to being rejected due to health and outside genetics.

4.     Commission is 5%. PO fee is $10.00 for cattle and $5.00 for sheep. All proceeds are used to promote Woods cattle and Native sheep.

5.     No cattle over the age of five will be accepted.

6.     We encourage all breeders to have their cattle and sheep inspected prior to the sale by a veterinarian and to provide those papers at the time of sale. The State of Mississippi requires that all cattle be tested for brucellosis (bangs). We will have vet on hand to provide further inspection.

7.     We encourage all breeders to bring the very best as these are the ambassadors for the breed and will serve to promote our breeds of stock.

8.     For every breeding bull you consign you must consign two (2)  females. No exceptions. These may be grown cows, heifers, or bred heifers.

9.     The order of the sale shall be as follows:

            (A) Dry cows

            (B) Pairs

            (C) Adult bulls

            (D) Bred or breeding age heifers

            (E) Heifer calves

            (F) Junior bulls

            (G) Bull calves

            (H) Yearling lambs

            (I) Grown sheep (all sheep of shearing age must be shorn)

All cattle will be sold in order of consignment. If there are any recreational cattle (roping and bulldogging steers) these will be sold after a brief intermission.

10.    All buyers are asked to provide a letter of credit from their respective banks.
