The following is an 8 step process before dispersing your cows herd for a successful Bred Cow sale.

1.)Guaranteed breeding dates. We need to know when the cows were exposed and ideally when the bull or bulls were pulled from the cows as well as the breed of bull used. Although all the cows will be pregnancy tested supplying such information goes a long way to giving the buyers confidence in your cattle. Herds with a tighter calving interval will sell better.

2.)Only sell young and middle aged cows. No one will pay a premium for old cows. If possible provide us with ages of your cows. Ideally it is best if you have year letters on the ear tags. The vast majority of people can see if a cow is old simply by looking at her. You are only making yourself look bad by trying to pass an old cow off as younger than she really is.

3.) Have a good herd health program and provide the records to back it up.

4.) Make sure your cows are in good condition. Good body condition (not over fat or under fed) and good hair coats.

5.) Cull out cows with bad udders, feet and other structural problems as well as cows that have poor temperaments.

6.) Cows that are uniform in size, type and breed that are bred to good quality bulls are always easier to group and market.

7.) Age verify your cows.

8.) Sell your cows at the right time. We can help you with this.
