VBPA is holding MONTHLY SALES. We need your consignments as early as 
possible to plan for the lowest trucking prices.  Note the cutoff date

VBPA is providing an eastern VT collection point

in White River Junction at340 North Hartland Road, at the old Howard 
Johnson's Complex Parking Lot (100 feet from the intersection of 89 and 
91) and a western VT collection point 
<https:[log in to unmask],-73.1224836,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x2f801bfe47c6b401!8m2!3d44.4958109!4d-73.1224836> 
at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds in Essex Junction.  We also have 
a**central VT collection point**at the stop light on Route 7 in 
Charlotte at the old gas station.*

*Charlotte pickup is 8am
CVE pickup is 10am
WRJ pickup is Noon**

The collection points are where you transfer from your trailer to the 
sale trailer.

You'll be emailed waybill forms between the date consignments are closed 
and the date of pickup that must accompany your cattle on the shipment.  
Be sure to provide an email address and phone number in your consignment 
so we can reach you!

Your cattle must be marked with large easy to read FARM TAGS so they can 
be identified by sale staff prior to the sale.  The FARM TAG should be 
letters (your initials or farm initials) followed by a number such as 
WC1, WC2 etc. Without your ear tags, it is possible that your animals 
will be unidentifiable during the sale and VBPA and the sale barn assume 
no responsibility for your failure to identify your animals with LARGE 
EASY TO READ EAR TAGS.

Note that METAL EAR TAGS are also /REQUIRED/ by VT law for animals 
living in Vermont for positive identification. The Vermont Agency of 
Agriculture provides free of charge NUES tags (metal ear tags) and 
applicators for officially identifying cattle.  These tags may be 
obtained by contacting Darryl Kuehne at (802) 793-5348 (Southern VT), 
James Cameron at (802) 279-4962 (Northwest VT), Zachary Bartlett at 
(802) 371-9949 (Northeast VT), your local veterinarian, or your State 
Department of Agriculture.

Cattle will be weighed prior to entering the Sale Ring and be auctioned 
off to the highest bidder. If the cattle are pre-conditioned (i.e. 
vaccinated, de-wormed, weaned, etc.) the details must be on your waybill 
and this information will be used by the auctioneer at the sale. It 
would be in the best interest of the consignor to have pre-conditioning 
management protocols in place as it typically justifies a premium.

***PLEASE NOTE: If we do NOT get a full truckload, trucking costs may be 
higher. You are welcome to check with the office to see where things 
stand. Check by the deadline for best results. Also, if you recruit your 
friends and neighbors to consign, shipping cocts will be lower.

**ALSO NOTE: Cows, bulls and pregnant cows WILL need to be separated 
from other smaller cattle. Inform the office if you have any cows, 
pregnant cows, or bulls. We do not accept Bulls over 500lbs.*

The non-refundable consignment fee is $10 per head for VBPA members and 
$15 per head for non-members. This is to pay for advertising and 
marketing and VBPA expenses to put on the sale.

At the sale barn, per head fees will be deducted from your proceeds for 
commission and trucking. A check will be mailed to each consignor 
directly by the sale barn following the sale.  Be sure you have accurate 
information in your consignment and waybills.
