Sale barn calves from TN and AL ship Thursday and land Friday morning. We ask for a bank wire the day the cattle land.

We buy sale barn calves Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Occasionally I can buy a load from Tennessee in 1 day.
Pre-Vac Cattle from Missouri take 2 days.
Weaned cattle and bawlers from Kansas, usually 1 day.
If we buy them the way they come through the ring, they’ll end up 2/3-3/4 black, most of the rest will be Charx, and there is usually a handful of reds. Our standard number 1 order is no Limousines or Herefords. If you like them, they will usually cheapen a load up a dollar or 2.
While we put your calves together your calves are in 15-30 acre grass traps. They get a mixed ration with 20 Lbs, of CTC/ton.
Yes, we process 40-50% of the loads we ship. The cost for that is $1.50/hd, and the cost of the medicine.
