Value-Added Sales

Value-added Sales

We offer our producers the opportunity to market their cattle in special sales when certain value-added practices have been utilized. These practices can include health programs, optional feeding programs, weaning and individual identification. Most of these programs require castration of bulls; heifers guaranteed open and dehorned. The industry desires these value-added cattle and will pay a premium.


 

All program cattle require castration of bulls & dehorned 

The seller will be billed 0.10 per 100 cwt for all bulls not castrated. 

Bred Heifer Information 

All programs cattle require heifers guaranteed open day of sale & dehorned. 

If the buyer chooses to have the heifers pregnancy tested, at buyer’s expense, and any are found bred, the heifer will be weighed and identified back to the seller. (Weight can vary from average sale weight.) Seller has the option to take the heifer home or resell her. (Resale value will be less.) 

Cattle must be tagged with the program specific tag. Tags are purchased through our facility @ $1.50/each.
