As we are in uncharted waters at this time, we understand that our customers depend on selling their livestock at Auction.  So at this time, we will be implementing a few changes to our auction procedures in order to comply with the Iowa Department of Health Services.  We understand these changes will be an inconvenience but we feel that for the health and well being of both our valued customers and employees, it needs to be done immediately. 

 Sellers:  We ask that you limit your time at our facilities to the unload areas only.  Please turn in all paperwork at the docks and exit the facility.  We do apologize, but during this time the auction seating will be for active buyers only.  Please remember that each sale has a live broadcast www.lmaauctions.com so you can view your cattle being sold. We know that not everyone can wait for the mail to receive their checks.  Please call the office and make arrangements to pick up your checks after the sale has concluded.  We will make every effort to accommodate you if we can.

 Buyers:  We will be limiting the seating area to active buyers only.  Please understand that bringing a guest, spouse or children will not be permitted as we need to allow for social distancing.  We also have order buyers that are willing to help with your purchasing needs call David 563 920-2082

 We understand that these changes will be an inconvenience, yet it is important that we adhere to them.  We appreciate your understanding as we all get through these unusual times and we will keep you informed of any other changes that might occur.  At this time our sale schedule will continue as advertised but please continue to check the website for any changes and for special sale dates.

NOT SALE DAY


 We do our own web page so
if you're bringing livestock
whether it's 1 or 100

At one time when there were dairy cattle up and down every road
we could count on herds and larger consigments at just about every sale

NOT TODAY

So ........ it's important to call in your consignments early


In order to get in printed media we need to know at least

14 days prior to sale day

We saw that importance with the sale Friday March 13th
as we were able to advertise several sets of Dairy Cattle
and we had the biggest crowd on the seats that we've seen in recent months
