The Catoctin Area Livestock Sale will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2020, at The Eyler Stables, managed by Wolfe Agricultural Auction, located at 141 Emmitsburg Road in Thurmont.
The sale will begin with awards given out to exhibitors at 5:30 p.m., and the sale beginning at 6:00 p.m. The sale will take place inside Sale Ring Barn. There will be a small area for handicap seating, and chairs and bleachers for buyers and everyone else. Selling that evening will be beef, sheep, swine, and market goats, which will be exhibited by youth in the Catoctin Feeder Area.
The slaughter houses that will be used this year are Shriver Meats in Emmitsburg, Shuff Meats Market in Thurmont, and Stoney Point (Nell’s) in Littlestown, Pennsylvania. All animals will be sold by the head this year and not by the pound.
