All exhibitors entering the Market Goat, Market Lamb, Steer and Swine shows must write letters to prospective buyers. One copy of this information will be included in the Market Animal Record Book.
While you are encouraged to write more, you are required to write to a minimum of five (5) prospective buyers. Three (3) letters must be made to new buyers and two (2) letters to former (last year’s) buyers.
Use the following guideline:
1) Introduce yourself.
2) Invite them to the Fair to support the youth of Marion County.
3) Tell about your project and ask them to consider bidding on or purchasing your animal.
REMEMBER: The more buyers, the better the prices.
