Upload a Video to YouTube
The Cattle Range Mercantile

..You can include a video clip of your cattle on your Cattle Range listing...
  • The process is simple... Upload your video to YouTube and e-mail us the link to your YouTube page.  We put a link to your YouTube page on the listing and prospective buyers can "click" on it and view the video as many times as they want. 
  • If you are familiar with YouTube, go ahead and Sign in to YouTube! If not, read the information below before signing in.
  • We strongly suggest that you also submit digital photos of the cattle because most of the visitors to The Cattle Range are from "Cattle Country".  An analysis of our visitors shows that over 60% use a dialup connection, which makes it difficult to effectively view a video clip.
  • It is also suggested that you limit the time of your video clip to less than 1 minute.
