A few miles South of Wichita Falls, Texas on Hwy 281
As a service to the local dairy community, Wichita Livestock Sales offers a monthly Holstein Steer Special on the third Wednesday of each month. The holstein steers will sell along with the weekly sale, right after the cows and bulls. With larger lots of holstein steers, sellers are able to capture full market value for these calves.
For more information on the Holstein Steer Special, please call Billy at 940-541-2222.
Beginning in April, Wichita Livestock Sales is offering a Weaned Calf Sale in conjunction with our regular sale on the first Wednesday of each month. These calves will sell right after the cows. Calves must be consigned by Tuesday so Billy Easter can contact prospective buyers for these calves.
Weaning calves and administering pre-weaning and post weaning vaccinations adds value to calves. Quality and uniformity are also big factors. Sometimes if a seller has only a few head of weaned calves, it is hard to get the extra dollars that these cattle deserve.
By having the Weaned Calf Sale once a month, we hope to have enough cattle to insure a higher price for the weaned calves. Length of weaning and vaccination programs are up to the seller.
All cattle are held in pipe pens with feed and water. Many of the pens are covered, and a catwalk provides accessibility for buyers to preview the day's run of cattle.
A consignment sheet with information on weaning, vaccinations, wormer and other comments will be completed by the seller. This information will then be passed along to the buyers during the Weaned Calf Sale.
Download the Weaned Calf Consignment Sheet here. Forms will also be available at the sale barn when you deliver your cattle.
As directed by the 2002 Farm Bill, mandatory country-of-origin labeling will be implemented on September 30, 2008. Download the Consignor/Livestock Owner's Certificate here.
All livestock sold must be accompanied by an affidavit, stating the origin of the cattle. Only the individual with firsthand” knowledge of the origin of the livestock being transferred may sign a "Continuous Country of Origin Affidavit” or “Origin Declaration”. An affidavit signed by the owner/manager or other responsible person with firsthand knowledge can be delivered by a trucker or transporter but truckers and transporters cannot sign for the origin of livestock.
