Consignors: With the drought conditions over much of the region, there are very few buyers looking for anything other than top-of-the-line calves. What that means is that anything that doesn't fit in the bunch will be severely discounted. Short ears, short tail, lame, off-colored, or anything that sets them apart, will result in big discounts. We recommend that you keep them at home, even if you have to buy feed, and sell when the runs get smaller. If you bring them to town we will sell them for whatever they bring, but you might not be impressed with the price.
