2020 National Show and Sale
July 17th – 18th
Plans are made to be changed… Or it’s just the nature of 2020 this go around!! Dakota Area Targhee Association voted to not have a live show and sale this year. The Board supported decision to postpone National Show in South Dakota until 2021. In lieu, an Online Auction is going to be conducted. Willoughby Sheep Sales will be hosting our online sale to be open for bidding starting July 17th at 7 am and closing at 7 pm central time, July 18th. This is what’s termed a “Racehorse” style auction, so if there is live bidding within the last 5 minutes of closing the sale will be extended.
Visit www.wlivestock.com for consignment information. A full list is on Page 4 and 5. Website will be continuously updated with entry information and pictures up until sale starts.
