CONFUSION
 
Livestock are animals that are bred and raised to keep the producer broke, the commission man confused, and the buyer crazy. 
 Livestock are born in the spring, pastured in the summer, mortgaged in the fall, and given away in the winter.
 They vary in size, color, weight, and grade. The man that can guess nearest to the weight and market grade is called a buyer by the public,
 a robber by the rancher, and a poor business man by the banker. In talking to buyers and sellers, some say the market will 
 go up and some say it will go down. Whatever you do will be wrong. When you have light cattle, the buyers want heavy ones; when you 
 have heifers they want steers and vice versa; when they are thin they should be fat, and when they are fat they should be thin. 
 There is one thing you can depend on, the commssion man will always say,
 "YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE YESTERDAY."
 
 
A CATTLEMAN'S PRAYER
Now o Lord please lend thine ear, The prayer of the Cattleman to hear;
No doubt many prayers to thee seem strange, But wont you bless this cattle range?
Bless the round-up year by year, And dont forget the growing steer;
Water the land with brooks and rills, For my cattle that roam a thousand hills.
Now, O Lord, wont you be good, and give our livestock plenty of food;
And to avert a winter's woe, Give Italian skies and little snow.
Prairie fires wont you please stop, Let thunder roll and water drop,
It frightens me to see the smoke, Unless it's stopped, I'll go dead broke.
As you, O Lord, our herds behold- Which represents a sack of gold-
I think at least five cents per pound, Should be the price of beef year round.
One more thing and then I'm through, Instead of one calf, give my cows two.
I may pray different than some others, but then I've had my say, and now amen.
-Anonymous American
 

 
 
 

**BUYERS**

All animals must be paid for prior to being picked up unless other arrangements have been made with management. If you have not bought animals before please let us know so we can have someone assist you. We have many experienced buyers to help make everything easier.  

**SELLERS**

Once your animals have sold on Saturday, it usually takes about 15 minutes to process your check. If you need to pick up your check later, someone will be available all night on Saturdays until 11:00am on Sunday mornings. We are open Mondays from 9:00 am until 2 pm. If you prefer, you may pick a check up during those times. Please contact us if other arrangements need to be made.
