Feeder Calf Sales
State Graded Feeder Calf Sales are held each year at Stanly County Livestock Market. Guidelines and record forms are available on this page.
State-graded feeder calf sales are a popular option for producers looking to earn extra value for their calves. Since calves are grouped into pens according to sex, weight, and grade to create uniform groups, we are able to add extra value to the calves at the sale. We use state graders from the NC Department of Agriculture at all of the sales.
