Washington Cattlemen’s Fall Heifer Sale

Nov 11, 2019


The Washington County Cattlemen’s Association (WCCA) will host its 8th Annual Fall Heifer Sale on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019, at the Appalachian Fairgrounds in Gray, Tenn. The sale will begin at 4 p.m. Producers are encouraged to come early to view the cattle and register for a buyer number.

The association sale is offering over 100 heifers that are either bred, open, or have a calf by side. Most of the heifers are commercial, and some will qualify for the TAEP Bred Heifer Program. The cattle have been screened and are excellent for anyone interested in improving his or her herd. The heifers will be pregnancy checked the day of the sale by a licensed veterinarian. All cattle will need to be paid for and loaded out on the day of the sale. The WCCA Fall Heifer Sale will also have a fundraising concessions booth run by local FFA organizations. All proceeds of concessions will benefit scholarships that are given annually to two outstanding youth who are interested or involved with agriculture.

For more information or for a sale brochure, contact the Washington County Extension Office at 423-753-1680.
