On Sunday morning the show ring is tranformed to an auction venue. The animals will be led down a chute to the stage area and the auctioneer will work his magic.
All parties interested in bidding sign up at the registration table. It's close to 99 degrees and the crowd is small. The local McDonalds has provided a huge jug of orange drink and the local food store donated cookies. Free bottles of water are in a large cooler near the stage.
These two bidders check out the information, with their bid numbers tucked safely in their pockets.
