DUNLAP LIVESTOCK AUCTION
701 Hwy 30 W, Dunlap, IA 51529, 712-643-5761

Sale Times for Tuesday, Oct. 4th @ 9:00 am Fed Cattle, followed by Weigh Cows & Bulls, Feeder Cattle @ 12:30pm then Bred Cows/Pairs/Breeding Bulls


Friday’s feeder auction had 1200 clvs & 1000 yrlings. Basically 100% of the cattle we sold carried a full series of vaccinations. In addition, the genetic package of a majority of our clvs were superior. I’m so proud of the job our producers do & honestly all the beef producers across this country do. That’s why we need country of origin labeling.
