News & Recent Events:
THCDA HAS A NEW PERMANENT ADDRESS!
PO Box 291707
Kerrville TX 78029
Please make sure that you are current on Membership Dues for the remainder of the year ending
September 30, 2020.
We have changed the location for the 2020 Texas Hill Country Dorper Association Show and Sale. Due to the current Covid-19 crisis and the possibility of limited number of attendees for the upcoming show and sale in Fredericksburg we have had to seek out other accommodations that will be more suited to our needs. Andy Baumeister and the Lampasas Cattle Auction have agreed to house this year’s Show and Sale. This will allow us to continue on with business as usual.
Here are a few things that will be different.
There is no wash area at the Sale barn. When your sheep arrive hand cleaning is all that is permitted.
Each consignor may only be given 1 pen for all of their haltered sheep; dividers will be available for splitting the pens to separate Rams and Ewes. Pens of 3 will also be sharing pens when from the same ranch. Dividers will be provided for them also. (We will do our best to ensure that everyone’s sheep have enough room.) Space may be limited so feed and tack may need to be stored in your trailers or in tack areas shared with other consignors.
A concession stand/ sale barn Café will be open for business on Friday and Saturday.
The ON-LINE bidding will be on LMAuctions.com and not on DVauctions as originally announced. All online bidders must pre-register thru LMAuctions.com for the Lampasas Cattle Auction in order to bid.
All sheep will need to be paid for and loaded out on Saturday evening following the Sale.
Absolutely no sheep will be allowed to load out prior to the end of the auction.
We want to Thank Everyone for your patients as we try to work thru these trying times. We feel by making these few concessions that we will be able to provide our members and buyers an opportunity to market or buy sheep as we have in the past without having to limit the number of participants.
We will be releasing more information as it becomes available. For questions please call one of the following:
Justin Marschall (830) 459-8605
Mike McKinnerney (325) 456-4842
Bob Yelverton (830) 683-7161
