The Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization (NETBIO) is getting ready for its next pre-conditioned calf and yearling sale — to be held on Friday, May 21.
Over 5,500 head of cattle that have been weaned and raised through the NETBIO pre-conditioning program have already been consigned to the sale. Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission co-owner and NETBIO board member David Fowler said NETBIO member-producers will have a lot of quality cattle in the sale.
All the calves offered in the sale will have been pre-conditioned through the NETBIO vaccination program and weaned at least 60 days in advance of the sale.
The sale, held at the Sulphur Springs Livestock Market, will begin at 1 p.m. The cafe will be open, and the cattle will be penned for viewing before the sale.
This auction will be 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.
