Horned cattle are beginning to be discounted more and more all the time. If you want your cattle to bring a premium price they must be horn free.

If you are planning on selling calves in the next month or so, please call ahead to book your cattle with us. If we know how many cattle are coming it allows us to inform buyers so they can have adequate trucks available.
