PLEASE NOTE

Quality, yield capability, and finish will vary

We're pleased to have the capability of providing this extensive market report
and making it available to you within a few short hours after each auction.
In this day and time of less ag price reporting,
one of our goals is to help keep you abreast of the market.
We list the price and weight of nearly every animal selling in today's auction.
Not everyone sells at the top so we believe it's important
to see a larger picture of the market.
Quality, condition, and yield should be obvious by price.
If it isn't, we hold educational classes here
each Tuesday starting at 9:00 AM and attendance is optional.

We're proud to serve
The Top Livestock Producers
in the Tri-State Area

Elected officials, regardless of their pomp or swagger, are nothing more than OUR employees.
We "hired" them by electing them to office.  If they are not doing the job they were hired to do, then we should let them know.  With email, it has never been easier as it doesn't seem to be quite the drudgery of sitting down and writing a letter.

If we sit back and do nothing,
you can be assured nothing will change.

Get more than involved, not just once every two or four years ------------------ but on a regular basis.
The difference between 'involved' and 'committed' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast:  the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'.

Important Notice
BQA Certification Required

 

Beef Processor
To Require BQA Certification

 

All Tyson Foods cattle suppliers, including sale barns will need to be BQA or
equivalent certified beginning January 1, 2019.
This is driven by retailer and end consumers including the fast food business
and grocery business and it has a trickle down effect.

 

As your livestock market we are already burdened by paperwork
and this will add to the list of items that we must keep on file.
However, if we don't have your certification on file Tyson Foods cannot bid
on your cattle at Manchester Livestock Auction
or for that matter at any other livestock auction.
Therefore we will need a BQA certificate from you.
Please Note:  Tyson primarily purchases beef cattle;
however if you have Holsteins or dairy cross cattle,
we would strongly recommend you become qualified
as we believe sooner or later this could be required by all cattle purchasers.

 HOW DO YOU BECOME CERTIFIED

Cattle producers can complete BQA training at no cost online
at BQA.org and that process takes about two hours

or at no cost to you

2 training classes will be held at Manchester Livestock Auction
(attendance at one not both)

Wednesday July 25th, 2018

or

Thursday July 26th, 2018

9:00 AM to approximately 11:00 AM

refreshments will be provided

registration starting @ 8:30 AM

 

BQA remains voluntary, however, without your certification,
you will limit who can bid on your cattle so the choice is yours.

 As we have progressed through our 35 years here at MLA
this is just another of the items we've seen in the ever changing livestock environment.

 As your partner in livestock marketing we look forward to serving your needs in the future.

It's a common misconception that livestock markets are in the business of competing with each other ..... on the contrary ...... livestock markets are in the business of providing competitive markets for small, medium and larger producers.  The information placed on this page and our web site is available so you can see what's happening locally.  Markets fluctuate and so does the quality of livestock so you'll need to make your own judgment in that regard.

We're proud to be in the livestock auction marketing business and we're just as proud to work for and with the best people in the world.

The price reports on this page (and others) are placed here using something like Microsoft Excel .... and I believe you can "copy and paste" into your Excel program for your own use.
