Custom Process & Return:
The Solano Jr Livestock Boosters have made arrangements for the animals to be sent to a federally inspected USDA processing facility for harvest. After processing, the carcass will be delivered to your choice of one of these designated lockers:
Gates Meat Company - Vacaville - 707-448-3867 (Gates will only be taking a total of 25 hogs)
Kountry Meats – Elk Grove - 916-685-5431
Browns Valley Meat - Napa - 707-253-2480
You must make arrangements with the locker for cut & wrap instructions & pay the locker directly for those charges.
Custom harvesting fees that will be added to your BidCal Invoice:
Beef - $220
Hogs - $65
Lambs - $44
Goats - $47
SEE BELOW FOR CUT & WRAP FEES.
The animal is consigned back for Resale. The buyer pays the difference between bid & resale price and receives no meat in this disposition.
- Example: Hog weighs 250 lbs., Resale price (market rate) = $.20 ($50), bid = $1000; difference= $950 (your share).
- This may be done for any specie. Resale prices will be posted on Monday, May 4th.
Resale amounts are calculated by the weight of the animal. Resale value is capped at certain weights for each species.
Example: If you purchase a Lamb and it weights 160 lbs, you will only receive a resale price credit for up to 150 lbs.
Beef - $.90 cents (Resale pay up to 1,300 lbs)
Hogs - $.22 cents (Resale pay up to 300 lbs)
Lambs - $.80 cents (Resale pay up to 150 lbs)
Goats - $2.70 (Resale pay up to 105 lbs)
Carefully consider disposition of your purchase. DISPOSITION CHANGES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED AFTER BILL OF SALE HAS BEEN SIGNED.
