Policy for Livestock Checks

Livestock Sale checks will be available to be picked up on or after August 28 until  Oct 2, 2017.  A stamped thank-you card for the buyer must be brought to the Extension Office at the time of check pick-up, even if the member has previously thanked the buyer in any way. Names and addresses for the buyers will be available in the Extension Office.

Due to late pick-ups resulting in late thank-you cards to the buyers, all checks must be picked up by October 2.

Checks not picked up by October 2 will be voided. Checks will be reissued only after a stamped thank-you card for the buyer has been received by the Extension Office. A fee of $25.00 will be deducted from each check that is reissued. New checks will be mailed to the 4-H member within one week.

We appreciate the generous support of our buyers and they deserve to be thanked in a timely manner.
