Crossville Stockyard joins Vacc-60 effort

Sep 26, 2022


Crossville Stockyard, LLC will begin marketing Vacc-60 cattle during the first sale of each month, starting in December 2022.

Vacc-60 is a 60-day preconditioned calf program and is designed to prepare calves for the next phase of production by getting them accustomed to eating out of a bunk and by giving them recommended vaccinations. Preconditioning practices drastically decrease the likelihood of sickness and disease, thereby increasing the value of the calves.

Any cattle weaned and enrolled in Vacc-60 during September will be eligible to sell Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022, at the Crossville sale barn. Depending on the number of Vacc-60 cattle anticipated, the Crossville Stockyard, LLC will make appropriate accommodations to effectively market these larger lots of cattle. October-weaned cattle will sell Jan. 7, 2023.

By coordinating producers’ cattle marketing, Crossville Stockyard, LLC hopes to encourage the production of better-quality calves and to create a platform for producers to be rewarded for their efforts. While pre-conditioned calves have historically sold at above-average prices, past performance does not guarantee future sales performance.

The first step in enrolling cattle in Vacc-60 is to fill out an enrollment form. For assistance, please contact TFC Livestock Program Manager Dale Bryson at (615) 202-8997 or dbryson@ourcoop.com or a Vacc-60 Professional at your local Co-op.

For more information about the sales at the Crossville Stockyard, contact the sales staff at (931) 484-1447 or visit their website at www.crossvillestockyard.com. The Crossville Livestock Barn is located at 79 Stockbarn Road, Crossville, TN 38557.
