|Just as The Cattle Range
relies on the integrity of cattlemen to advise us when their cattle are
sold to a buyer originating from the site, we also rely on them to advise
us when the cattle are sold otherwise or no longer for sale.
Unfortunately, not all
sellers do so and this causes both frustration and anger from prospective
buyers who call and are told the cattle are no longer available.
In some respects, The Cattle
Range is similar to a “Classified Section” in a print publication in which
a person places a “For Sale” ad and doesn’t pull the ad after the item
is sold. The paper has no way of knowing the item is sold.
Upon receipt of notification
from sellers, it is our policy to immediately mark listings -SOLD-
if sold through the website or remove listings sold otherwise or no longer
for sale. On a regular basis, e-mails are sent to sellers inquiring
about the status of the cattle and older listings are systematically removed.
Additionally, at the bottom of each listing is the link shown below from
which a buyer can anonymously advise us they were told the cattle are sold.
We encourage buyers to utilize this to help us keep the site more current.
