ETGRA Spring Open Sale on March 3
Gleaned from Goat Gossip
By Fred Vandermartin
The East Texas Goat Raisers Association will hold its Spring Open Sale on March 3 at the Ike Carden Arena in Fairfield, Texas. Freestone County has a wonderful facility with covered pens, and a covered arena. This is an auction sale and is open to anyone who has goats for sale.
Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. and ends at noon. Sale starts at 1 p.m. Consignees pay $7 for each meat goat and $10 a head for breeding stock, registered or not registered. Animals will be checked for signs of illness; registered animals must be tattooed.
Sales rules posted on the Internet at http://www.etgra.com/sales.htm.
The Elkhart 4-H will be providing concessions and Jake Cooper will be working his magic with the smoker to provide the BBQ brisket! We welcome anyone who would like to vend their products.
