“Top 10 Best Practices” for Regional Association Consignment Sales
In the 2023-2024 Missouri Angus Directory, we released the work of the Missouri Angus Association Industry Relations Committee’s, “Top 10 Best Practices” for Regional Association Consignment Sales. The items are not listed in any particular order and are meant to aid consignment sales in running more effective, higher grossing sales that better fit the needs of buyers. The Missouri Angus Association “Top 10 Best Practices” for Regional Association Consignment Sales document can also be viewed here.
In an effort to further expand upon the practices, an article will be written monthly and printed in the Missouri Angus Trails. As each article is printed, it will also be available below.
- Consign healthy, sound structured, functional cattle.
- Have accurate data available on each lot consigned.
- Cattle should be in excellent condition.
- Consignors need to be positive and accept some responsibility for marketing the sale.
- Identify your customers and market to them.
- Pictures in sale book can add value.
- Poor pictures are worse than no pictures.
- Sale books need to be out in a timely manner.
- Know what type and how many cattle are desired by buyers in your marketplace.
- Social activities can strengthen your Association.
