We had a very good sale despite having one of the worst days possible, with zero visibility almost all day from 100 Km/hour winds and snow. There was a very small crowd in attendance because of the storm, but we had over 400 people who watched the sale online. There was also many areas with no power and no phones so the sale was pretty good considering this. The two year old bulls averaged $5100, Yearling bulls averaged $4311 and open heifers averaged $4305. Two bulls and two heifers did not sell however they were sold within hours of the end of the sale. Here are the prices:

1. $4000
2 $6000
3 $4000
4 $ 4750
5 $5500
6 $3500

What happened to lot 21?

 I missed listing him. He had an infection and we left him at home. We will semen test him again in a couple weeks.

 We had two bulls pulled because they had testicles that had been stepped on. I have never had this happen before but I imagine it happened in some of the storms we had this winter. Lot 8 and lot 20 both had injured testicles that were shrinking in size. You could actually see a scar on the scrotum of each bull and the vet was pretty sure they were stepped on. I had a couple helping me the day we were semen testing and they asked the vet to semen test lot 21 anyways, as this was the bull they were planning to buy in the sale to breed their heifers to as he had a 78 lb birth weight.  He still tested 90% with only 1 testicle ( second highest semen score I had)  and they insisted I price him to them. I told them to wait and see if they could buy a bull in the sale. They did not get a bull in the sale so they want to buy the one nutted bull yet. I have never had this happen before either.

I am curious how long it takes and how much it appoximately costs to import a heifer or bull to the US and ship it to Des Moines, IA for example from a sale like yours.  I have no idea...

As you are probably aware, every state has different health regulations for cattle entering that state. Iowa is one of the better ones, as are Illinois, Indiana, Texas and Missouri. All that is required is a Canadian health paper and an Identification tag ( CCIA tag) along with a " CAN" tattoo in their right ear. I then have to complete the customs and broker documents and send them in . Once they are done a eManifest is issued by the broker firm used. Usually I can get the eManifest the same day I apply for it. I have to get an appointment with the USDA vet at the border.  So basically, I can be ready to take animals to Iowa within a couple days. I always provide the export papers on animals I sell to the US and the buyer has to pay the broker fees ( usually $200-$250 per animal- it is a total rip off!!) Other states require health testing for brucellosis, and TB so you have to know what each state requires. It really isn't real hard to do.
