Our Fall 2022 Auction will be the first week in September, and run for 3 days on bidding. We will be using the same format as last time. If you are a breeder and would like to enter lots in our Fall Auction, feel free to drop us an email at WholesomeHill@gmail.com
This fall's lots will include:
-White Mafia kids who are growing out now
-Another pair of White Boii straws
-An embryo pair or two
-The best 2 dappled Runner kids
The crown jewel will be the dam of the best fullblood White Mafia kid (sired by White Boii) as a bred doe for fall White Boii babies that will be the same quality we had in the first pairing. Exciting! And probably the BEST way to get multiple White Mafia fullbloods with your herd letters.
We do want to keep the auction moderately sized so some animals will be listed on our sale page with a "Buy It Now Price" but will come into the auction at a Lower Reserve than the Buy It Now if they are still with us by sale catalog time.
Register to bid:

Step 2: Understand How The Auction Works. The auction is an online auction that spans 3 days. The format for bidding is a Comment Log. This is very similar to the Facebook group SouthEast Farm Auction where people place their bid as a comment in a comment log and the highest bid/last comment of the thread on time and day of close, is the winner. Once bidding opens, there is an "Opening Bid" that let's bidders get comfortable with bidding and try the process out. There is also a "Reserve" on each lot, meaning that if bidding does not reach that amount, the lot will not sell. Auction managers will come on to the bidding thread and announce when the Reserve was met and that the lot will sell. Finally there is the Closing bid, this is the last bid on the lot at the time the sale closes and if higher than the Reserve, it will be the winning bid. The Auction Manager will announce the Winning bid on each lot at close. The Auction Manager has sole determination of which bid was the final bid at time of close, Central Standard Time is the time zone being used for the sale.
Step 3: Bidding The way to bid is to post a comment that contains ONLY your current bid amount. Bids increase by minimum $25 each. Your comment is your binding commitment to purchase for that price. Questions, non bid comments, and other statements will not be allowed in the Bidding Thread. The Bidding Thread is ONLY for bids. Questions on lots need to be directed toward Consignors directly, preferably before the Auction is in progress so that Consignors have ample time to respond to you. The Bidding Thread is not the place for questions, however if you have questions, please feel free to contact us and ask - we are happy to explain anything.
