Special cattle sales, including a dairy dispersal and three Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization (NETBIO) sales will be held at the Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission between now and November 14.
The first of the four upcoming sales will be the September 19 NETBIO pre-conditioned stocker and feeder calf sale. The consignment book has closed on that sale with over 7,000 head to be sold.
All of the NETBIO sales begin at 1 p.m. and visitors are invited to come early and view the cattle.
Along with the regular dairy sale on October 4 at the market center, the dispersal of the Bob Neal Dairy will be held. Included in that sale will be 105 milking cows, 23 dry cows and 84 heifers, some to calve in two months.
The consignment book is still open for the October 17 NETBIO sale. This sale was added to the organizations pre-conditioned sales list a year ago due to the increased demand from organization members wanting to sell their pre-conditioned calves and yearlings through the NETBIO marketing system.
Producers interested in consigning cattle to one of the NETBIO sales should call the market center and get their ear tags. It is the only one of the three NETBIO sales that still has an open consignment book.
The organization’s anniversasry sale will be held on November 14 and will mark the 20th year for this pre-conditioned cattle producer organization. This sale has been full for quite some time — with over 8,000 head of pre-conditioned cattle on the books.
All NETBIO auctions are broadcast on the Internet and the Sulphur Springs Livestock Auction will be accepting bids at LMA Auctions.com. Internet buyers should register in advance in order to bid.
