Lexington, KY — Those planning to bid online for yearlings selling at the Ohio Selected Jug Yearling Sale may now register to do so by clicking here. Online buyers must sign up and receive approval from sale management before placing bids when the sale commences.
The deadline for registration is Sept. 10.
The “live” online bidding platform is hosted by the company CCi.Live, among the very first to offer such a service to the livestock auction industry and known for secure and reliable transactions. The live auction can be viewed and online bidding accessed on any device — mobile, tablet or desktop.
“I urge anyone who’s even considering doing this to go ahead and sign up now,” said sale manager Randy Manges. “It’s an easy process, and I want buyers to have the security of making important purchases regardless of what circumstances might lie ahead.”
The Ohio Jug Sale — America’s leading regional sale by yearling average — has been moved this year to the attractive and spacious Pickaway Agriculture and Event Center in Circleville, Ohio.
The “in-person” sale with live attendance gets underway at 10 a.m. on Friday (Sept. 18). Show day is scheduled for the day prior.
Manges said that all COVID-19 precautions will be in place on the sale grounds.
“I think those planning to attend will appreciate the safety measures, and will be very comfortable with the facility and the overall setup.”
