Buyers: You will notice that we take great care to get the best video possible to properly represent the cattle you will be bidding on. Many times we try to take video at deliveries so you'll see a better look at the cattle you'll get instead of baby calves.
Sellers: One of our brokers will travel out to the Ranch to visit with you and take professional video of the cattle. It's best to have the cattle caught in a corral or fence corner so we can take our time to get the best video possible. We know this isn't always easy to do but if this is the only physical representation of the cattle, we should do the best we can!
