What a great day it was to be at the stockyards. We all owe you guys a huge thank you for supporting us with your buyer's numbers and your cattle on consignment.
Could you think of anything better to do than spend a nice April day at the sale barn surrounded by more than 900 head of cattle - 917 to be exact - brought in by more than 100 consignors?
Whether you bought a chicken fried steak dinner from the cafe or a trailer full cattle, we really enjoy hanging out and getting to know each one of you each and every week.
