 Thursday - September 21, 2017 - Special Feeder Sale

 

1968 cattle sold today at Fairview Sale Barn to a very optimistic group of buyers even though the fed cattle market continues to flounder.  The overall quality of today's offering was excellent and condition was the best.  All weights and classes easily found buyers and competition was keen.
