The best time to sell your cattle is in the fall before cows start coming into heat. This will allow you to get the most money for your cattle prior to calving season. If you can, try not to sell until close enough that spring calving has begun so that you do not lose potential buyers due to the higher prices of breeding stock during this period.
Can I sell my calves at birth?
Many people feel it is more profitable and convenient if they wait until calves are ready for market after weaning (generally 6-8 weeks) but this often results in lower returns than selling them at birth if there is a demand for their type of beef on the market. Contact us with any questions regarding calf sales or contact one of our current customers who have already made these decisions and see what their experiences were like!
