UT Plateau AgResearch Fall Heifer and Cow Sale
Nov 03, 2021
“Utilizing online bidding technology allows buyers the convenience of bidding on cattle without physically attending on the day of the sale,” says Walt Hitch, director of the UT Plateau AgResearch and Education Center. “Anyone who has bought from us in the past will recognize the auction setup, as it is very similar. We will assist any bidders who need help during the registration process.”
An open house and preview will be held Monday, November 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST at the Plateau Center. At the preview, representatives will be available to show the cattle, assist in bidder registrations, and give instructions for bidding. Lunch will be provided for all preview attendees. Cattle may also be previewed on Tuesday, November 16, prior to 10 a.m.
The online auction can be found at taysauctions.com. You may register to bid at any time. The auction will be live starting on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Auctions will begin to close at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 16, 2021.
All heifers and cows to be sold are registered Angus and part of the UT herd. Animals will be grouped like previous sales. Animals will be sold by the pen, and pens will be made up of 2-4 animals similar in size and genetics. A total of 32 pens or lots will be sold.
Animals will be available for pickup from Wednesday, November 17 through Friday, November 19. Payment must be made prior to pick up.
