|We have been
following the COVID-19 news closely and
continue to monitor the situation. With the information
we have available at this time, we will plan to continue
on with our production sale on Saturday March 28th.
These are difficult times and will present a number of
challenges for all of us in the present and in the near
future. But as farmers and ranchers we must continue to
provide the world's food supply and that starts with the
upcoming planting and breeding season.
We recognize it's important to
provide you with a high quality bull to turn out in the
coming months. However the most important thing is that
you, our support team and our family are safe and
healthy. Therefore, we will be taking extra steps to
help do our part in supporting social distancing.
We are fortunate to have partnered
with DVAuction to bring you access to online bidding
this year. The bull and female videos are all online
currently and you can bid online sale day if you would
like, DVAuction.com. This is a great option to allow you
to participate from the comfort of your own home. Please
be sure to set up a DVAuction account prior to the sale.
We recommend getting approved to bid early this week,
because as you'd imagine there will be a lot of people
looking to use this service.
Another option is to call one of
the sale day contacts and bid directly over the phone
during the sale or leave your bid with one of them:
- Greg Hubert: 785-672-7449
- David Hobbs: 913-515-1215
- Austin Story: 660-663-5048
- Courtney Story: 660-663-7925
If you prefer to see the cattle in
person, we would be happy to meet with you anytime this
week. Please just give us a call to set up a time.
To help those of you who might
have planned to be on site but won't be available now,
we will expand our free delivery to 300 miles on any
animal in the sale.
As the week evolves
we will keep you updated on the sale. Please continue to
follow us on Facebook and our website, 8storyfarms.com
where we will provide you with the most up-to-date
information. If you have any questions or concerns,
please don't hesitate to call, text, email or message
us! We continue to pray this is all resolved quickly,
that you are staying healthy, and that we have the
opportunity to see you soon, even if not in person this
