Another hot and muggy Linn County Fair is in the books. Local 4-H and FFA members brought their projects for judging, and the public came to view the projects and attractions of the fair. As is the norm, the fair concluded with the livestock auction where this year the participants sold market hogs, sheep, and cattle. Potential buyers began registering at 8:00 am on Monday, June 28, at which time they were treated to a breakfast of doughnuts and other sweet breads. One new feature of the auction was reserving locker slots for the livestock purchased. Either the buyers needed to make arrangement with the locker/processor ahead of time to process the animal, or the seller could reserve a spot. Any animal not kept for processing would be sent to market. Attorney Ron Martin once again attended the Fair and the Livestock Auction. Having grown up on a farm and been a member of 4-H and FFA himself, Ron likes to support the young agriculturalists by participating in the auction. Below is a picture from two of the girls that Day Rettig Martin, P.C. bought livestock from at the auction.
Ron’s law practice includes agricultural and business debt restructuring and commercial matters. If you have any legal questions about your farming or business operation, feel free to call Day Rettig Martin, P.C.
