Would you like to make $30 to $40 per head more? Then lower your marketing costs.
TCR offers a Low-Cost & No-Risk Marketing Option that costs $30 to $40 per head less than selling at auction.
Cost per head of Selling @ Auction...
Commission & Yardage: Averages compiled from 32 major livestock auctions in North Central, South Central, Western, and Southeastern States.
Freight Cost per head: Based on a 75 mile haul @ $3.75 per mile for a 48,000+ lb. load.
Shrink: University studies have shown that cattle loaded, hauled to an auction, sorted, and left standing in a pen for several hours before being sold and weighed, can shrink in excess of 5%. The cost above is based on a 3.75% total shrink, less the 2% shrink commonly imposed on cattle weighed on a scale at the ranch, which equates to an additional shrink of 1.75% if sold at auction. Actual results could be more or less, depending on conditions.
Low-Cost because TCR’s Fees are a fraction of the cost of selling at auction:
