    Do you get pretty fair prices at this auction? Or only if you have a breed someone really wants?

    This is just like any type of auction. If you got something that more than one person wants the price goes up. The spring sale the prices were good to high but this is the fall sale so depends what someone is looking for to hold over the winter for next season. Generally speaking quality usually sells itself.
