Northeast Missouri Show-Me-Select Replacement Heifer Sale F and T Livestock Market, Palmyra, MO for 12/8/12 Receipts: 312

Year Ago: 255

All Heifers in the sale have met minimum standards for reproductive soundness, pelvic size, body condition and weight. They have also undergone a comprehensive health program, and were guaranteed bred to easy calving bulls, with many synchronized and artificially bred. Projected calving dates were given for all lots with all heifers expected to calve from January thru April, with the majority due in February and March. The offering was screened for blemishes, muscle, frame, body condition score (BCS), and disposition by a final screening committee comprised of official graders from USDA and the Missouri Department of Agriculture, then sorted into lots according to calving dates and body type similarity. An overflow crowd was on hand with some buyers traveling several hundred miles and representing several surrounding states in attendance. Demand was very good with the sale averaging 2097.00 per head on 96 lots. This was 85.00 per head above last year’s average and 432.00 higher than two years ago. Replacement Bred Heifers: Large 1-2 (including several registered heifers) 1200-1450 lbs 3rd stage preg 2500.00-3100.00 per head, individual registered heifer 1225 lbs 4100.00 per head.
