Chap- I agree with a lot of what you say, in terms of these things needing to be discussed.  I think that the quality of the calves should be somewhat controlled, we don't want people bringing out sale-barn calves (not that we would really have any of those based on what I've seen on here).  I also really like the idea of like a "tour" of sales,  and I would be definitely up for helping get calves ready, finish getting them broke, clip them and all that, for a commission.  I don't think I could host one though, we're short on pasture, but I could have probably 6-10 calves brought here and I could work on them I bet..depending on how many we could consign and how many pens we have free at the time.  

committees are what we need. lots of them with 3 members or more on each of them.

I would be more than happy to sit on a committee for this deal. I like the 20 head figure. Nice and easy to work with.

Dori,
I just fell in love with your little showbarn. I would be willing to go up there and work on some calves if people were willing to have them there. I think this may actually end up happening. I am with Justin on clipping and prepping. I will be more than happy to get some ready for a fee. I have some SP members that can be used as references of my work.

Dori, I think I might have to move in next door and put a couple calves in that show barn...it's pretty sweet.  I would be willing to bring some calves up and work on some for a couple days as well. I can clip pretty quick, so if the calves are halfway broke and quiet, it wouldn't be a big deal to get through 20 calves between Quinton, myself, and whoever else was helping.

Thanks, "Q"!  I have electricity, water, etc, so having the calves there is no problem. I've also had semi's in w/no problem.  Big, circular drive. That side of the farm is also completely fenced in board (you can see it in these pics - yes, those are Lowlines!), and the driveway gated, in case of "escapees"!  Only problem with Michigan is weather.  What month do all of you think would be best?  There are plenty of small town, but really good, people who could do consession food if that's what anyone would want. BTW, my place is also on a main, paved road just 4 miles south of I-96.  I could get excited about this!  Hey, it gives me incentive to get my fence painted!

MY OH MY (clapping) If we get this put together we coul;d be in for a good time. Dori, you had better be ready, I think if Justin and myself end up spending a  few days in your barn you will need until the following year's sale to recooperate (lol)

HAHA!!  Well, I'm old but I'm pretty mighty!!!  I might recover quicker than you think!  I'm still concerned about wet weather if you do this before late June/early July.  What month are y'all thinking?

Well I was personally thinking about mid to late August maybe, that way you do not eliminate april and may babies. We also wean ours a little earlier than some people. Maybe weekend after labor day? Who knows. If we go much earlier than that I may not have but 1 calf to consign, but would still be on that prep crew.

Based on weather, I'd say mid-August might be a good choice.  September, after Labor Day, can be wet in Michigan.  BTW, I think we can also set up 2 or 3 clipping chutes inside the barn in the aisle.

Just sayin, Mid to Late August will take out quite a few consignors who will be showing at State Fairs...IL, IA, and IN are run right together, and take up most of August.  A week or two after Labor Day would be ideal, gives us State Fair go-ers to finish getting the youngn's in and prettied up.

Dori's sure got a pretty sweet place!  I'm officially jealous!!  If you have a sale in Michigan at her place, I may just have to drive up & check it out.   

If weather becomes a concern & if you don't mind north/west Kentucky.  I can probably hook you guys up with a serious facility.  This arena is located about 12 miles from me.  Has a huge parking lot, bleacher seating for 3,000, restrooms, consession stand, banquet rooms, etc, etc, etc,.  Cattleman's association has pannels or could electric fence in the dirt.  For that matter, you could even have a prospect show & a sale in this place & stall all the cattle too.   The location isn't bad, but not great.  It's 45 minutes from Evansville, IN, 20 minutes from Henderson, KY & about 12 miles from Shawneetown, IL.  Probably 2 - 2 1/2 hours from Louisville, KY, 2 - 2 1/2 from Nashville, 3 from St Louis, & about 4 hours from Indy.  It's 90 miles from both Missouri & Tennessee.  Less than 45 miles from I-24, about an hour south of I-64, and 30 minutes from a KY 4 lane PWKY (future I-69).  You can't see the back section, but it has a bunch of horse stalls in it that could probably be used too.  All under roof with electric & water.   

And if you let me have a Lowline display and or possibly an event in conjunction with the sale/show, I may even rent the place so you guys could have it for free.   ;)

Here is a picture of the inside...

One other thing to consider is your market. Say its in MI will you be marketing to local 4-H club kids in MI or MI purebred breeders or even purebred breeders from other states? There will also have to be a really unique marketing program to get these buyers there. Also what breeds would be selling, but that probably won't be too big of a problem. You guys would need a sale managing committee to come up with that and some others. I could see this being really fun. I doubt if I'll have anything I want to sell next fall, but if there's any other way I could help count me in.

The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

Is this possibly a private treaty sale? Personally I would think an auction would be better with trying to get so many people to consign from different locations and would make viewing the calves and selling all in one day. TJ where is this place at you mentioned, I boat on the Ohio anywhere from Evansville to Golconda and this would be fairly close for me. Sounds like a good plan in the works and I sure could use a place to move some cattle.
