PLEASE NOTE

Quality, yield capability, and finish will vary

We're pleased to have the capability of providing this extensive market report
and making it available to you within a few short hours after each auction.
In this day and time of less ag price reporting,
one of our goals is to help keep you abreast of the market.
We list the price and weight of nearly every animal selling in today's auction.
Not everyone sells at the top so we believe it's important
to see a larger picture of the market.
Quality, condition, and yield should be obvious by price.
If it isn't, we hold educational classes here
each Tuesday starting at 9:00 AM and attendance is optional.

We're proud to serve
The Top Livestock Producers
in the Tri-State Area

Elected officials, regardless of their pomp or swagger, are nothing more than OUR employees.
We "hired" them by electing them to office.  If they are not doing the job they were hired to do, then we should let them know.  With email, it has never been easier as it doesn't seem to be quite the drudgery of sitting down and writing a letter.

If we sit back and do nothing,
you can be assured nothing will change.

Get more than involved, not just once every two or four years ------------------ but on a regular basis.
The difference between 'involved' and 'committed' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast:  the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'.

It's a common misconception that livestock markets are in the business of competing with each other ..... on the contrary ...... livestock markets are in the business of providing competitive markets for small, medium and larger producers.  The information placed on this page and our web site is available so you can see what's happening locally.  Markets fluctuate and so does the quality of livestock so you'll need to make your own judgment in that regard.

We're proud to be in the livestock auction marketing business and we're just as proud to work for and with the best people in the world.

The price reports on this page (and others) are placed here using something like Microsoft Excel .... and I believe you can "copy and paste" into your Excel program for your own use.
