The Board Sale concept was developed to reduce risk of excess transportation, disease exposure, and morbidity by adhering to a strict health and management protocol, and by keeping the cattle on the farm until delivered directly to the buyer. The cattle were auctioned off as listed on a “Board”, sight unseen. However they had been described and graded by USDA Market News Livestock Reporters. This is very similar to the Central New York Feeder Calf Pool but for yearling cattle.
The auction will be held September 14 at Empire Livestock in Bath. Pick-up dates and locations along with weighing conditions may vary, but will be stated in sale catalog. Buyers can bid in person at the Empire Bath facility on Sept 14, or by phone.
