Helping run the back, keeping the goats back and forth to the ring. Thank you to the ones that helped serve food and got that many people fed that fast. A catered meal of goat meatloaf with sides was served. Also, a huge thank you to all those that helped with clean up, load out and taking down all the equipment. Trust me all your help was noticed and truly appreciated. We couldn’t do this sale without consignors like you.”
