There will be a VET available for animals purchased and transported out of state. 
Also VET will do pregnancy checks on cows before the sale or after to verify animal is bred for a fee.
(To eliminate any concerns about your cows being bred, have them pregnancy tested by a Vet before bringing them to the auction and be sure to bring your Vet Certificate to show that she is bred.  Many time's pregnancy verification can bring more money for the animal)

 

 

REQUIREMENTS:

Selling bulls over 2 years old MUST HAVE A TRICK TEST PAPER provided to the sale barn before the animal is unloaded.  Be sure to give yourself enough time to have the test done.
When transporting animals to Oklahoma, have your vet call the Oklahoma Dept. of Agriculture, Health Requirements Governing the Admission of Animals

 

Anyone consigning animals and later scratching them from the sale WILL NOT BE REFUNDED THEIR CONSIGNMENT PAYMENT

 

There will not be any "NO SALE" on animals.  If the seller feels they are not getting the price they want, you need to buy back and pay commission.  Please contact the auctioneer or Blake Coble either before the sale or the day of the auction as to the price you want for your animals. 
All animals will be sold by the head, not by the pound, unless the seller specifies beforehand.

 

The seller may lead their animal into the ring if they are halter trained.

 

Bring your own bedding, hay and water buckets for the animals in the pen.

 

SELLER NOTICE:  We ask all our consignors do not advertise your consigned animal or sell your animal before the sale, as each year people see the consignments on the website and attend the sale to find out that the animal they came to purchase has already been sold.  We make every effort to pass on any scratches as soon as possible and correct the site as soon as we know.  But some people don't always check the site.
If an animal is ill and confirmed by a VET paperwork sent to the HHCA beforehand, that scratch will be honored, but the consignment fee will not be refunded as we have advertised your animal.
