For nearly 68 years, Dunlap Livestock Auction has been the place where buyers and sellers meet to participate in one of the last true price discovery mechanisms in the United States...the livestock auction. Competitive marketing allows the seller to achieve the highest possible price available for their livestock in an auction setting.
We are contacting you with some upcoming changes in the beef packing industry.
Beginning January 1st, 2019 Tyson Beef Packers will no longer accept cattle from producers that are not Beef Quality Assurance “BQA” Certified.
This applies to all of Tyson purchases—private country purchases, contract cattle, and auction purchases.
§ These changes do not apply to feeder cattle or slaughter cow/bull sellers.
Producers are need to make sure they bring copy of certificate to the auction.
We do not receive a copy from the extension it is the producers responsibility to get us that information.
§ We fully expect the other major packers to follow suit with the BQA certification in the future.
§ Without a certification on file at Dunlap Livestock Auction Tyson Beef Packers will not be able to bid on your fat cattle.
If you have any questions on this important industry change, please call our office @ 712-643-5761.
We are located on southwest edge of Dunlap, in Harrison County, Iowa on Hwy 30
