What:     Central Iowa Beekeepers Association (CIBA) Annual Auction

When:    Saturday, April 18, 2020

Where:   18930 210th St.

              Minburn, IA  50167


Accepting consignments on the day of the auction starting at 8:00 AM

Auction starts at 10:00 AM



If you have excess equipment to sell, or if you are in need of equipment , come to the CIBA Auction.  Or just come and visit with other BEEKEEPERS and enjoy the food and the company.  Donation of equipment to CIBA will be sold and the proceeds used to support ongoing Association projects.



It’s time to consign.  CIBA members that commit to consign by

March 1st will be awarded a 10% consignment fee, which is a reduction from the standard consignment fee of 15%.  After March 1st, CIBA member consignors will be charged a 15% consignment fee.  The reduction in the consignment fee is NOT available to non CIBA members.


Committing to consign does not require a list of the items you are consigning, but the sooner we know the items you have to sell, the better we can advertise and the better your opportunity to sell your beekeeping equipment.


As you are putting items away or cleaning your supplies, start a list of what you want to bring to the auction.



All comb and certain equipment will be inspected by the State Apiarist or designees starting at 8 AM the day of the auction.  (Rejected equipment/comb must be removed from the premises immediately.)


Concession Stand!

As in the past, there will be a concession stand at the auction—the stand funds our Honey Queen / Honey Ambassador program.
