November 24, 2017 - Zanesville, Ohio
Several members of the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) will sell consignments in the OCA Replacement Female Sale on Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, at 6 p.m. at the Muskingum Livestock Auction Company facility in Zanesville, Ohio.
Breeds represented will include Angus, Charolais, Maine-Anjou cross and commercial females. Service sire breeds represented include Angus, Charolais, Maine-Anjou, Red Angus, Shorthorn, Simmental, and hybrid composites of theses breeds. All of the females selling will have a safe pregnancy status verified within sixty days of the sale and all lots will be eligible for interstate shipment.
“Now is a great opportunity for cattlemen to add numbers to their herd or get started in the beef business. With cattle prices seeing a bearish market after coming off of a record-high for the past couple of years, we’ll undoubtedly see increased herd expansion,” says John Grimes, OSU Extension Beef Coordinatior. “This sale represents an excellent opportunity for cow-calf producers to add quality bred heifers to their herds and potentially take advantage of the positive long-term economic outlook for the beef industry that will come as the supply and demand margin narrows.”
