Sale will go on despite NEWA Fair cancellation
The Stevens County Cattlemen’s Association (SCCA) recently announced that they will continue to host the SCCA Fat Stock Sale this summer for youth, despite the fact the NorthEast Washington (NEWA) Fair has been canceled due to Covid-19 uncertainties. The SCCA Fat Stock Sale is set for Sat., Aug. 22.
SCCA has coordinated the fat stock sale for decades, ensuring the details of the sale from the auctioneer to the bookkeeping are arranged. SCCA President Scott Nielsen said this year will be no different.
“We want parents to be assured that this sale will go on and the efforts of their kids to raise a quality animal will be recognized at a live sale,” Nielsen said. “We are looking forward to the same strong community support we see every year at the SCCA Fat Stock Sale.”
Nielsen emphasized the sale will be a live sale, not a virtual sale, and SCCA will work to meet state guidelines on the event. The location details are still being determined, but Nielsen said it is important to let the community know the sale will go on.
“We will be releasing more information as we work out the details, but we will have a fat stock sale this year and look forward to seeing the market ready animals raised by our community’s youth,” he said.
