NETBIO Holds October Sale Friday

Last Friday, the Northeast Texas Beef Improvement Organization (NETBIO) held its October cattle sale at the Sulphur Springs Livestock auction market, selling 3,391 head of pre-conditioned calves and yearlings.

David Fowler, Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission co-owner and NETBIO board member, said, “It was a very good sale. The market was good, and the cattle looked good. We had a lot of activity from our Internet customers, selling over 600 head of cattle to online buyers.”

A total of 142 producers (NETBIO members) sold cattle at the sale. Thirty buyers purchased the cattle destined for all parts of Texas and surrounding states.

They broadcast all NETBIO auctions on the Internet through the Internet connection LiveAuctions.TV. Internet buyers can contact the Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission office at 903-885-2455 for details. Internet buyers should also register in advance to bid.

Fowler said producers do a great job pre-conditioning their cattle for sale. As a result, buyers paid an average of $897.45 per head for all cattle sold at this sale.

The next sale will be NETBIO’s anniversary event slated for Friday, Nov 18. Buyers, sellers, and friends will enjoy a barbeque lunch beginning at 11:00 am a.m. Auctioneer and Sulphur Springs Livestock Commission co-owner Joe Don Pogue will start selling cattle at 1:00 pm at the Livestock Commission auction market, and the consignment books for that sale are closed.

Fowler said the next NETBIO sale for which producers can get tags for and consign cattle is the Jan 20, 2023 sale. Call the livestock office to reserve tags.

The NETBIO Pre-Conditioned Stocker and Feeder Calf Sale give its member-producers a market to offer their pre-conditioned calves and yearlings in load lot quantities. NETBIO holds eight pre-conditioned calf sales each year to accommodate the various weaning dates of its members.

“We make every effort to provide a marketing opportunity for producers who have pre-conditioned cattle ready to sell,” Fowler said. Just call the Livestock Auction office for detailed information about the program.
