Title: Iowa Beef Expo Shorthorn Sale
Post by: Shorthorns4us on February 17, 2021, 12:52:44 PM
Hey-- Saw the Shorthorn Sale was a different format this year-- how did it go?  Any likes, dislikes, etc.  What are the thoughts?

I was told all but a few of the cattle sold.  I was told last night that quite a few Angus did not.  At least some consignors didn't enter cattle in the Expos because they thought it might be cancelled due to Covid.  The on line has the advantage that it reduces some of the astronomical sale expenses.  On the other hand, not having an actual on site event reduces the presence of a breed at the Expo.  I saw the Maines had only 10 in their sale.  The few consignors to the Shorthorn sale I talked to were reasonably satisfied.  Only going by what I heard.
