Kentucky State workshop to include buck auction

I wanted to pass along the information on the Small Ruminant Third Thursday coming up on October 19.  The program agenda is attached.

The sale of bucks will be held as the last activity of the day and it will be a live auction.  All payments must be cash or check for the bucks and there will be a minimum price for all animals in the sale.  The bucks are from our research herd.  We did this sale for a couple of years in the past as a silent auction, we did not have one last year, but are going ahead again and going to try the live auction this time around.  Information on the bucks will be available the day of the sale.  Anyone is welcome to attend the program and bid on the animals. 

The program starts at 10 am at the Harold R. Benson Research and Demonstration Farm located at 1525 Mills Ln, Frankfort KY 40601. 

Thank you
Ken Andries
