Starting in 1935, this report covers feeder cattle and calves that appear in the auction. Feeder cattle and calves are graded and reported according to official USDA live animal standards and guidelines. The report is disseminated according to USDA format guidelines and instructions, under the voluntary price collection and reporting authority of USDA AMS. This sale is also known to shut down in the case of weather limiting the movement of livestock.
This report covers feeder cattle and calves. Market information and data is collected throughout the course of the live auction, as the reporter will grade the cattle and record the pertinent information in the reporting tool. Information that the reporter must record for each lot includes the official USDA grade, weight, head count, and selling price. To ensure the accuracy of these reports, each Market Reporter is required to take a written test and apply their skills during an official live animal grading correlation with their supervisor every two years.
