Description: Ft. Pierre Livestock Auction will host its annual R-CALF USA rollover auction calf sale fundraiser between noon and 1 p.m., Friday, June 3. A calf donated by longtime member supporters Dean and Delia Johnson, of Fairburn, South Dakota, will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to R-CALF USA.
FPLA is a yearly sponsor at R-CALF USA's annual convention. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at FPLA for the annual R-CALF USA saddle, custom made by Baxter Badure, of Belvidere.
R-CALF USA President and Region III Director Brett Kenzy will be on hand to assist in taking bids and answer questions. Vitalix Inc. will gift whip flags to anyone who donates at least $250.
If you are unable to attend but would like to participate in the auction, please call FPLA at (605) 223-2576.
Rollover auctions are fundraising events put on by R-CALF USA volunteers to raise money for the organization. Those who wish to support the efforts of R-CALF USA can bid on the calf, then donate it back so it can be auctioned off again and again, until bidding ceases.
R-CALF USA is a one-member/one-vote organization. Voting members must own cattle. Associate members support the cause and do not own cattle. Activities carried out by R-CALF USA for the benefit of the U.S. cattle industry are funded exclusively by the independent cattle producers who pay their membership dues and by cattle producers, main-street businesses, and other individuals who participate in and contribute to fund-raising events.
R-CALF USA works on various issues that affect the continued profitability and viability of independent U.S. cattle producers, such as mandatory country of origin labeling, checkoff reform, livestock price reporting, animal health concerns, captive supplies and packer ownership of livestock, as well as various trade agreements.
Businesses supported by the cattle industry and individuals in the cattle industry can contact R-CALF USA at (406) 252-2516 or email@example.com; or Karina Jones at (308) 760-3466 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make a contribution for the rollover auction.
