BUYING AN ANIMAL AT AUCTION
When you purchase an animal through the Arapahoe County Youth Livestock Auction, you are not only supporting our 4H youth, you also get to fill your freezer with premium meat.
You have three options for the animals you purchase. Just let us know which option you prefer after you place your winning bid.
If you have a preferred butcher and have secured a processing date, choose the Home option. You will be responsible for transporting the animals you've purchased to your selected butcher.
Choose one of our two local butchers to process your meat - Your Choice Meats in Wiggins, Deer Trail Custom Cuts, or Atlas Meat Co in Fort Collins. We'll transport your animals to the butcher immediately after the sale. You are responsible for processing fees and picking up your meat.
If you are unable or would prefer not to process the animal, choose the Buy-Back option. You'll pay the difference between market price and your winning bid.
