Full-Service Cattle Sales & Marketing serving the Fallon, Nevada and Outlying Areas.
Industry leaders always say Nevada is an export only state. 8000 head sold Thursday/Friday of the February 18th Feeder Sale. 1700 head consigned from out of state. Utah-399, Wyoming-100, Idaho-82, Oregon-664, California-393. Why do Nevada cattle need to go boost the economies of towns in other states? Why not take advantage of the hot feeder market at Nevada Livestock Marketing and encourage consignments of out of state cattle coming to Nevada rather than industry leaders encouraging Nevada ranchers to ship their cattle out of state. Over 200 trucks rolled in and out of Nevada Livestock Marketing this past week. Thats a lot of fuel and coffee. Buyers and sellers motel rooms, food etc adds up quickly as well. 6.5 million gross dollars rolling through the local economy in 2 days may not be the main reason for recent rises in sales tax but we know for sure these big Livestock auctions are not hurting. Market stayed strong all the way through and in spots light cattle were higher when we resumed the sale on Friday. Internet buyers were active again this month with over 1000 head selling online. More and more folks are watching our sales online and we couldn’t be happier with DVAUCTION.COM and what they have done to help expose Nevada cattle to buyers around the US. We are currently working with NDA to move our MONTHLY SPECIAL FEEDER SALES to Friday, so California buyers are not forced to decide between Orland or Nevada Livestock Marketing. Hopefully the transition from Thursday to Friday will be easy and we will have even more buyers in the seats or online to bid on your good cattle. Thanks to our awesome crew for working long hours and making it happen. Come join us next month, March 18th for another great feeder sale. 3000 head already consigned.
Next Feeder Sale is March 18, 2021.

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