STALLING AND SPONSORSHIP AUCTION
The HBC online stalling auction will take place this year on November 13th. The auction will be facilitated by Willoughby Sales with the first 30 spots in line being auctioned off at https://www.wlivestock.com/home
By agreement of the IBCA Board of Directors and the Hoosier Beef Congress Committee, the IBCA has adopted a policy governing the use of the stalling and sponsorship auction funds. Beginning this year and going forward, half of the auction proceeds will be used to establish a fund to create annual scholarships for the benefit of worthy students. These restricted funds may also be used for one-time and/or recurring expenses that will build long-term benefit such as but not limited to; youth development, leadership development and advancement of the Indiana beef industry. The restricted funds are not intended to support the organization’s day-to-day operations or eliminate any ongoing budget gap.
All disbursements of the restricted funds will be approved by the IBCA Board of Directors.
