Full-Service Cattle Sales & Marketing serving the Fallon, Nevada and Outlying Areas.
Next feeder sale is January 21st. We already have several loads of top quality cattle consigned. Check out our “Cattle” page and our Facebook page for pictures and videos.
Month by month the quality and quantity of cattle sold at NLM continues to improve. California is dry and stock water is a real concern. Why not wait until you have stock water secured and grass started before you buy the cattle? Buying cattle in July and August for December delivery never did make sense to me. There are 100’s of thousands of good cattle selling nationwide late fall and early winter, but most buyers are already full with early purchases. 4500 head sold Thursday December 17th, and we have never seen California buyers make less of a presence. They over bought on the summer video sales as usual and now they are panicking about feed and water, rather than waiting until feed and water were secured.
Luckily for our customers, NLM packs a pocket full of orders. If we don’t have the orders at the moment, we still start the cattle “on the money” and we do not let market “wrecks” happen to our consignors. By the end of the sale Thursday night, we owned 1400 head of good cattle. After several hours of classing and filming cattle, we sent videos to buyers nationwide. One buyer from Kansas so appreciated the quality and condition of these green, high desert Nevada, Oregon, Idaho and Utah calves that he bought them all. We mass treated with Draxxin and pulled off cattle that didn’t match the set. Hopefully once these Eastern buyers get a taste of the quality of cattle selling at NLM, they will be flying into Reno for all of our monthly feeder sales. California buyers are going to wish they hadn’t let the Kansas and Oklahoma buyers get their hands on these good calves. We have superior genetics and healthy calves, we just need to get the Eastern buyers in here to buy them. Keep raising the good ones and get the right respiratory vaccines in them so buyers get along good and come back for more.

Have a great day and we look forward to seeing you soon
