Preparing For Auction
On Tuesdays we accept cows for sale starting at 9:30 am up until 9:30 pm on the south side of the barn next to the office. If this time is ever a conflict with you, please contact our office and we will gladly make arrangements to take them any day of the week.
Our cattle capacity here at Cattlemen’s Livestock Auction is 4500 head of cattle. We have feed bunks and automatic waterers to keep your cattle comfortable for the sale. We clean the pens out regularly to lower any chance of disease transmission and truly want to make your experience with us the best. Our barn has five acres under roof to keep your cattle calm and cool before the sale. We have state of the art foggers and fans to keep them cool during the hot summer months.
We feed, water, and care for your animals to make sure they are in the best shape for the sale. For larger herds, we have the option to turn the cattle out to pasture and we also offer grass traps for the smaller bunches. We want the cattle to be kept best as possible in preparation for the sale.
We encourage you to visit our Getting the Best Price page to read about some ways to increase earnings for your herd. There is information about vaccinations, feed, sorting cattle etc. We want your cattle to bring a premium with us and want to assist you in any way possible. If you need assistance getting your cattle hauled to the barn, call the office and they can help make arrangements.
If you are a buyer, before the sale you will need to come to the office to get your buyer number. If this is your first time buying, our office staff will need to take some information from you. If you ever find yourself in the predicament of buying an animal with no way to haul it, just check in with our office staff. We can find someone local who will help haul the animal for you.
If you have any additional questions, please call our office at (870) 741-6311.
