We do what we do cuz that's what we do. 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 based on "finish", weighing conditions, weight of animal, age, mud/manure, and other pertinent factors.  If you're not sure, we hold class here each Tuesday starting at 9:00 AM.

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 to make your own spread sheet to see how many sold at a certain price range ... or weight range, etc.

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.

We were expecting $5.00 to $6.00 lower
