Our primary focus is to continue providing services to our members during this time of uncertainty, while also protecting our members and their families, as well as our employees. We know our members’ livelihood depends on marketing their livestock, and during this time we are continuing our weekly auctions as scheduled. However, we are implementing operational changes in adherence with the order from Governor DeWine and the Ohio Department of Health.
Effective immediately and until further notice, we are limiting spectators at all auctions. We are encouraging members to unload their livestock at the docks and leave our markets. We understand our auctions are often treated as a social gathering, but during this time, we recommend only active buyers attend our auctions. By implementing these changes, this will ensure our members’ can still benefit from the auction process while honoring the “social distancing” mandates from public officials.
Checks will be available for pick-up at the completion of the sale, but we are strongly encouraging members to utilize our ACH (direct deposit) service or have your check mailed to you to minimize in-person contact
These decisions are not easy, but they are necessary. We appreciate your understanding as we strive to maintain the highest level of customer service during this challenging time. By limiting in-person exposure of our employees and members, we believe we are doing what we can to help curb the pandemic that the world is facing right now.
