***ALSO JUST ADDED, WE WILL HAVE 60 GOOD YOUNG BRED COWS AS WELL. These are mixed coloured young cows, that are all sound with good bags and good feet.

****AS PER NEW MANDATE BY THE PROVINCIAL GOVT AND THE MLMA THE AUCTION MARTS WILL BE ABLE TO CARRY ON WITH CATTLE AND SHEEP SALES GOING FORWARD BUT NO SPECTATORS OR CONSIGNORS WILL BE ALLOWED. MASKS MUST BE WORN DURING THE PROCESS OF DROPPING CATTLE OFF ON RECEIVING DAYS.
As we head further into the fall run we ask buyers with larger consignments to call ahead to let us know you're shipping....This gives us the opportunity to tell buyers what we will have on offer. If you are wanting someone to come look at your cattle then please call one of our field reps and we would be more than willing to come give you an idea on value.
***DO NOT WEAN YOUR CALVES AND EXPECT TO SELL THEM 2 WEEKS LATER! THIS IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE A PRODUCER CAN MAKE! NOBODY WANTS TO BUY STALE CALVES. If you do wean them, then sell them the next day, or two months later!
***STARTING NOVEMBER 4th AT OUR SHEEP AND GOAT SALE, WE WILL NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO PERMIT SPECTATORS IN THE STANDS AND OUR RESTAURANT WILL BE OPEN TO ONLY TAKE-OUT DUE TO THE COVID OUTBREAK IN MANITOBA.

Producers that leave their calves intact until spring will always be discounted for cattle that appear coarse headed or having heavy tassles that will indicate they are stags or improperly castrated. IF THEY LOOK BULLY HEADED THEY WILL BE DISCOUNTED!! CASTRATE EARLY AND PROPERLY TO AVOID BEING DISCOUNTED!! ALSO HORNED CATTLE WILL BE SORTED OFF ANY GROUPS THAT ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR EASTERN ORDERS....THESE HORNED CATTLE COULD BRING $5 LESS THAN IF THEY WERE DEHORNED.
If there is any doubt or question on how to do it properly then please contact us and we will be happy to help!!
