09 Sep Bidding Options for the MT Ram & Ewe Sales
We’re less than a week away from the 91st Annual Montana Ram Sale and the 3rd Annual Montana Ewe Sale! We’ve working long and hard to put this sale together for you and we hope to see you there in Miles City at the Eastern Montana Fairgrounds! However, if you can’t make the sale but would still like the option to watch it LIVE online and put your bid in on a few of our top quality rams, you can still do that! Head on over to www.frontierstockyards.com, click on the “Ram Sale” photo and scroll down until you see the “Click here to Register”. Remember, registering for either sale will automatically register you for both sales. Please register online at least one day prior to the sale to familiarize yourself with the set up. If you just want to watch the sale online, you still have to register as a bidder. Some mobile devices are not well adapted to video software, so if possible, use a laptop.
Attention Canadian Buyers: It is the responsibility of the Canadian buyer to know and understand import regulations, as they have been modified. Canadian import rules state that a ram must be either RR or QR at 171 and AA at 136 to be eligible for import. The Montana Ram Sale will be offering numerous rams that have had the Codon 171 test done prior to sale. We will assist Canadian buyers, at their expense, in obtaining the second required test at Codon 136. Rams that test RR at 171 should be AA at 136, however, a second test is still required. Rams testing QR at 171 have approximately a 25% or less chance of testing AV, which would make them ineligible for import. To view Canadian Import Regulations, go to http://www.inspection.gc.ca/animals/terrestrial-animals/2007-5/eng/1321032703935/1321032839418. All sales are final.
Thank you again for you continued support of the Montana Ram and Ewe Sales!
