UPDATE TO DEPT OF AG AUCTION GUIDELINES as of March 3rd, 2020
SECTION EIGHT. Effective at 5:00 p.m. on April 3, 2020 and until 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2020, all auctions with more than 10 people present in person are hereby prohibited at all locations and venues, except for livestock auctions that only include food animals, which may continue to operate so long as there are no more than 25 people present in person. People who remain inside parked cars, trucks, or other enclosed motor vehicles shall not be counted in considering the number of people present, provided all people remain inside the vehicle at all times, and the vehicle remains enclosed with all windows, sunroofs, and convertible tops closed.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR BUYERS?
We understand your livestock needs to eat. We will do everything we can to allow buyers to purchase hay while keeping everyone safe and follow the guidelines set forth by the Dept of Public Health and Department of Agriculture. We are anticipating a large supply of quality hay and ask buyers to stay in their vehicles until we are selling the lot of hay you are interested in. We are hoping to implement "bidding from your car" and will offer phone bids as well as order buying. Please call Frank for more information or to place order bids.
Guidance for Livestock Auction Markets During COVID-19 Issued March 23, 2020
COVID-19 is currently circulating in Iowa communities. All Iowa businesses have a responsibility to take measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is critical that livestock auction markets institute immediate changes to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among their staff, sellers, and buyers.
• Use technology to host virtual sales. If you lack the ability to host virtual sales, limit the number of buyers present in the sales ring to ensure that buyers maintain at least a 6-foot separation between themselves at all times.
