Notes: PREVIEW DAY INFORMATION!

In an attempt to make everyone feel 100% WELCOME as well as ENCOURAGE those interested to come view our online sale offerings in person, we are now hosting an on farm Preview Day the weekend prior to each auction. Our indoor facility and viewing arena provide a comfortable environment to view our sale offerings no matter the weather.

We will provide attendees with sale catalogs that have lots arranged by pen number. Beginning at 9:00am, we’ll begin the preview of our sale offerings starting with Pen 1, and will continue viewing each pen in consecutive order. We should have time to run the set through our viewing arena twice. Visitors are also allowed into the barn to view the pigs in their pens before, after, or even during the preview.

Lunch will be provided for those interested.

If you plan to attend, NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY. However, a quick text or email letting us know you’re coming would be appreciated.

For those unable to attend on Preview Day, you are still welcome at any point before the auction to come view the sale offerings by appointment. Please try to provide 24-48hr Advanced Notice.

Anyone unable to come see our offerings in person, is of course welcome to text, email, or call with any questions.

Sincerely, Steve & Aaron Cobb.
