Depending on the sale barn and where you are, you can take animal(s) the day before, you'll just have to pay a small fee for that (a few dollars). That's what we do - traffic to and from the sale barn can be bad here, and we wouldn't want to miss getting there in time.Load the animal(s) up and take them to the sale barn early on the morning of the auction. Unload where they tell you and fill out the sale paperwork with address and phone number. If you don't want to watch the auction, go home. The check will be mailed to you. The sale barn takes a commission of about 10% plus a small charge for "yardage". If you can't go the morning of the sale, they will often take the animals a day or so in advance.
Some sale barns will provide a scrapies tag if you don't have one. Ours does.
