Our market reports list all goats and sheep not just the best ones as some markets do. This is the prices last sale- they may be higher or lower the next sale.

We appreciate all our customers and if your local market has recently closed we welcome you to our sale. Or if you are not happy where you are, we welcome you to come give us a try. We thank you for spreading the word about our sale.
The average price takes ALL into account not just the best ones. Weight, amount of meat on the frame, health, looks, market demand, age, and color even makes a difference. A nanny’s bag makes a difference. It is an auction and what ever someone will give is what it sells for.
We had a good consignment sale with lots of hens some nice rooster, several pullets, guinea keets, ducklings, turkeys, some equipment, cages, gates, barb wire and 95 bales of grass hay.
We had 244 head of goats and sheep Sat. and a good crowd, lots of new people selling and buying. Good stock brought good prices. The replacement market was still strong for quality replacement animals. Prices fall off pretty fast for mediocre stuff and large older animals. The demand controls the pricing. Quality will bring a good price and light weights are still bringing the better prices. But a skinny goat won’t. People looking for replacements will pay a better price than market to get it and a market buyer knowing a goat butchers out 43% won’t pay much if he is just getting skin and bones.

If it is rough, not much meat on carcass or looks wormy it won’t bring a good price. But if it’s a good breed, pretty color, slick, fat it will bring top price. With rain brings worms so watch your stock and keep them healthy, slick and fat. People are looking for QUALITY breeding stock or good meat products.
