Description
Support Wyoming County 4-H Meat Animal Participants Buy Local Quality Meat What if I don't need a whole animal? It is possible for two or more buyers to purchase one animal together, choose a processor, then divide the animal (halves, quarters, etc.) Buyers who team together must do so on their own and jointly decide on bid price, as ALL animals (including beef and dairy beef) will be sold whole this year. We encourage bidders that are interested in sharing animals to work together in purchasing animals. We can give all buyers credit in thank you advertisements if you notify the 4-H office after the auction of additional buyer contacts. How much meat will I get from an animal that I purchase? These figures below are estimated based on industry averages. Animals that are not raised to full market weight and finish, or over finished will have different dressing percentages. Actual amounts will vary on each individual animal. Beef Let's use a 1,100 pound steer that will have a dressing percentage of 60%. This will give you a 660 pound carcass that will yield the following retail cuts: Porterhouse, T-Bone, Strip Steak 6% 40lbs. Round Steak 11% 74lbs. Sirloin Steak 6% 40lbs. Rib Steak 7.5% 50lbs. Boneless Rump Roast 3% 20lbs. Chuck Roast 17.5% 115lbs. Hamburger 18% 119lbs. Stew Meat & Misc. Cuts 8% 52lbs. Bones, Fat 23% 150lbs. 100% 660lbs. Total Edible Meat about 500 lbs. Pork Let's use a 245 pound hog for our example and assume it will have a dressing percentage of 70%. This will give you a 172 pound carcass that will yield the following: Ham 19% 33lbs. Pork Loin 14% 24lbs. Bacon 14% 24lbs. Spare Ribs 3% 5lbs. Boston Butts 5.5% 10lbs. Picnic Shoulder 7% 12lbs. Pork Hocks 3% 5lbs. Lard, Bones, Misc. 34.5% 59lbs. 100% 172lbs. Total Edible Meat 110lbs. Lamb Let's use a 100 pound lamb for our example and assume it will give you a dressing percentage of 50%. This will give you a 50 pound carcass that will yield the following: Leg 34% 17lbs. Loin 12% 6lbs. Back 10% 5lbs. Shoulder 30% 15lbs. Breast, Flank, Shank (50% useable) 8% 4lbs. Waste & Trim 6% 3lbs. 100% 50lbs. Total Edible Meat about 46 lbs. Meat Goats Let's use an 80 pound goat for our example and assume it will give you a dressing percentage of 50%. This will give you a 40 pound carcass that will yield the following: Leg 30% 12lbs. Shoulder 21% 9lbs. Loin/Back 11% 5lbs. Rack 9% 4lbs. Waste & Trim 29% 10lbs. 100% 40lbs. Total Edible Meat about 33 lbs. Broiler/Roaster Chickens Let's use a 9 pound bird for our example and assume it will give you a dressing percentage of 75%. This will give you a 6.75 pound processed whole carcass. A sale lot will include two chickens. How much will pork, lamb, goat, and beef processing cost? Cutting and wrapping charges are figured on a dressed weight (carcass weight) basis. You will pay the processor directly. These fees are not included in the animal purchase price. Actual prices at the time of sale may vary from those listed below. Please make sure to contact desired processor ASAP to check availability. Wyoming County 4-H Program cannot guarantee desired processor due to high demand on available slots. *If you require processing through USDA FSIS for resale, please check with individual processors for availability/options.

All market chickens will be processed and frozen as whole chickens before the auction at HLW Acres in Attica. Buyers will be charged a $12.00 processing/cooler fee per lot purchased. The frozen products need to be picked up on Sunday, August 16th at the Wyoming County Ag & Business Center, 36 Center Street, Warsaw. Pick up hours will be from 4pm-8pm, that day only. What does it mean that animals will be sold by the head this year? Due to this year's extraordinary circumstances, all beef, hogs, lambs and goats will be sold by the head or price per animal, rather than by live weight pounds. Any animal weights offered by 4-H participants have not been recorded on a certified scale and should not be used as sole criteria for purchasing animals. How do I pay for my purchases this year since the auction is online? Payment for all purchases must be made within five (5) business days after the auction. Invoices will be emailed to the email address provided during online auction registration on Thursday, August 13, 2020. Checks made out to CCE Wyoming County are the preferred method of payment. Checks returned for insufficient funds will be subject to a $25 service charge. Credit card payments will only be accepted over the phone (585) 786-2251 between the hours of 10am-4pm on Thursday, August 13th and Friday, August 14th. All credit card payments will be subject to a 3% processing fee. Due to the nature of this year's auction, we may not be able to provide current market value per animal on sales receipts for tax purposes. 4-H members receive proceeds from the sale of their animal after all buyer invoices are paid. A nominal commission is collected each year from 4-H participants to help defray auction and program expenses. Can I donate an animal back to the 4-H livestock program this year? Due to the nature of this year's auction we are choosing not to ask for animals to be donated and resold to benefit the 4-H Livestock Scholarship Fund. If you are still interested in such an option, please reach out to the 4-H office in advance of the auction to discuss options. How will animal processing work this year? Again, animals are sold live, by the head. They will still be housed at 4-H participants facilities at the time of the auction. Individual 4-H families will be responsible for trucking animals sold, only to our list of cooperating processors. Processors will schedule appointments within a reasonable timeframe after the conclusion of the auction for delivery with 4-H families and be in contact with buyers to get cutting specifications. 4-H families will be expected to maintain quality care of sale animals until processing date. If a buyer decides to keep an animal or use a different processor, the buyer will be responsible for trucking arrangements, not the 4-H family. Animals will need to be picked up within five business days after auction. How do I register to participate in the online auction this year? WM Kent Inc. will be managing our online auction for 2020. Interested bidders will register by creating a user account for the auction on their website: http://www.williamkentinc.com/ preferably before the auction begins on Monday, August 10, 2020. When you register you will create a user ID, enter your name, company, address, phone, and email information. You will also be asked to give credit card information to verify identity. (Credit card information WILL NOT be used for payments since CCE Wyoming will be collecting payment, not WM Kent, Inc.) Bidders will also be asked to type in 1st and 2nd choice processor information. This is due to processor limits and availability this year. Processors have been inundated due to COVID-19 complications and demand for services. We are hosting our auction one week earlier to accommodate processor schedules and will do what we can to accommodate requests but cannot make any guarantees. Please reach out to processors before you bid, as previous year's arrangements may not be able to be met! Once you are registered, you can make bids throughout the auction timeframe. We encourage bidders to follow auction daily, especially the last few hours on Wednesday, August 12th so you do not miss out. You will want to plan to stay tuned during the evening on the 12th till the conclusion! What if I do not have internet or email? Trusted family or friends may be able to help you with online bidding. Please contact the Wyoming County 4-H office for assistance in advance of the auction if you are unable to participate online. Are bidders responsible for all lots they make a successful final bid on? YES! As with any auction, successful bidders become buyers. This may change your strategy this year, if you are accustomed to bidding on multiple animals throughout the normal auction process. Lots will begin to close starting 6pm on Wednesday, August 12th. You will definitely want to reserve time Wednesday afternoon and evening to participate in bidding until the conclusion of the auction or until lots you are bidding on close out during the evening! What does a rolling, soft close to an online auction mean? A rolling, soft close means that all lots will not end immediately at 6pm on Wednesday, August 12th. At 6pm, if there have been no bids made on Lot 1 in the last few minutes, it will close out. Approximately 20-30 seconds later, Lot 2 will close out if there has been no active bidding in the last few minutes. Lots will continue in that fashion. If there is still active bidding when a lot is set to close, it will continue until bidding stops for a specified amount of time. We encourage bidders who are new to this style of auction to check out Kent's current online auctions beforehand to see how it works. How will the Cake & Pie portion of the auction work this year? All proceeds from the Cake & Pie Auction go towards the Wyoming County Family & Consumer Science Program and are used to fund youth programming and FACS scholarships. 4-H Members interested in baking products for the cake and pie portion of the auction are submitting recipes to the 4-H office and will be selected as participants this year. Photos shown on the auction page are "practice" baked goods that will represent the finished product made under supervision from 4-H volunteers in health department approved kitchens the weekend of August 16th. Baked goods will be available for pickup until Sunday, August 16th and will be available for pickup at the Wyoming County Ag & Business Center, 36 Center Street, Warsaw. Pick up hours will be from 4pm-8pm, that day only. How many auction lots are expected? As of July 1st, we are expecting 90 market hogs, 20 beef steers, 4 dairy steers, 15 market lambs, 4 market goats, 35 market poultry lots and 10 baked goods. These numbers may vary some before the auction for a variety of reasons. Will animals be evaluated or what types of quality control measures are in place? Due to restrictions this year, we are not able to gather the project animals for official weigh-ins or in person evaluation. Auction animals will be evaluated by a qualified judge through the same photos you will see on the auction website for overall vigor, type, and sale worthiness. Animals and exhibitors will not receive champion designations this year. Keep in mind photos will be taken in late July so there will be several weeks left in the finishing phase before the auction. We are relying on our 4-H families to deliver the same quality we expect each year for our buyer base. The 4-H program is unable to give animal weights to buyers but encourage youth participants to reach out to potential buyers with updates on their projects as part of their marketing strategy. What type of recognition will be given to this year to successful buyers? Successful buyers will still receive by mail, the traditional buyer banners normally given out at the auction. Youth will still be expected to properly thank buyers in their own unique ways. Thank you advertisements released from the 4-H office will also continue as normal. What if I have additional questions before, during, or after the auction? The 4-H office staff are more than happy to assist you through this new process! We appreciate your willingness to support our 4-H participants and program despite all of the challenges we are facing this year. For general auction inquiries contact the 4-H office at (585) 786-2251 or email hmh62@cornell.edu. We are still working remotely most days but will get back to you ASAP. For immediate needs during the auction timeframe, you can contact Holly Harwood at (585) 455-8957. You may also contact Josh Kent (585) 813-1760 or josh@williamkent.com for auction site questions.
