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.
