Sumter County Livestock Auction - Webster, FL
- Sumter County Farmers Market
- Tallahassee, FL
This auction is a combined sale, with slaughter cattle, cows and bulls, and feeder cattle. This is a weighted average auction report. The weighted average report includes only feeder cattle; however, the auction report includes all of the livestock sold at the sale. All livestock that are included on these reports are graded and reported according to official USDA live animal standards and guidelines. These reports are organized according to USDA’s format guidelines and instructions, under the Voluntary Price Reporting authority of USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service. This report is released the Wednesday following the sale. This report is generally released each week; however, throughout the summer receipts may become very light. If this happens, the Market Report and Supervisor will determine whether or not the auction.
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.
