We are compiling early consignment info for our near monthly cow sales. If you have good take home kind of cows and bulls give us a call (573-324-2295) with the information for advertising or email Jon directly at: 
Notice To Consigners: Recently a new producer affidavit was requested from the several of the packers. This was a request on top of some others, along with the USA origin affidavit to comply with the Country of Origin Labeling laws. EMCC has decided to start over once again and consolidate producer affidavits to a comprehensive standardized form approved by the Livestock Marketing Association. This form will be available in the office or mailed with checks to be returned. After the form is signed and returned individual drafts will be market “USA” on the buyers bill of sale to signify COOL compliance and the list of other required affidavits on file. You can view this by clicking on the "EMCC Forms" up near the top of this page, and your are welcome to print a copy off your computer; fill out and mail into us.
Notice of New Breeding Bull Policy: In light of the new Trichomoniasis testing requirements we have decided to overhaul all our bull policies. All mature bulls will be considered a slaughter bull unless the owner qualifies the bull as a eligible breeding bull before the sale. Mature bulls over 24 months of age will have to arrive at the sale with a health certificate that is dated within 30 days of sale date. The health paper should certify a negative Trichomoniasis test along with a passing Breeding Soundness Exam/Semen Test within that 30 day date and then the bull should be kept from exposure to cows from testing to sale date. A 24 month old or younger bull will be considered a slaughter bull unless an owner complies with the same mature bull requirements or he would have the option to certify before the sale that it is a virgin bull unexposed to cows and can order a breeding exam/semen test preformed before the sale. Bulls passing these new stringent requirements will be marketed in a selling block following the morning cow sale at approximately 12:30 until further notice. (See additional comments from Dr. Cerven on page 8. August Issue of The Cattleman's Advocate.) For disease prevention and economic considerations it has become the custom in the majority or the western states years ago to largely only use first run virgin bulls in commercial herds. In reality we anticipate the recycling of breeding bulls in the state of Missouri will ultimately become a very rare practice.

Eastern Missouri Commission Co. (EMCC) holds weekly sales on Fridays and Special Sales as advertised.

Fat cattle and slaughter cows and bulls start at 9am with stock cows following.

At 12:30 pm we begin with veal calves, yearling and calves.

Some weeks we feature certain classes of cattle, but each week we sell ALL classes of cattle and ALL classes of cattle welcome.

We feature weaned calves and yearlings sales held in season the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month with the majority of the QSA source and age verified calves being sold on the 4th Friday. Bred cows and Pairs are featured on the 3rd Friday.

Cattle are recieved the day before sales starting at 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. or starting around daylight the day of the sales... other times by appointment... in advance please.

Each year you can expect EMCC to market around 70,000 farm fresh and farmer consigned cattle through the stockyard in Bowling Green. Our market, with the help of both consigners and buyers continues to provide an active market for a large trade territory in both MO and IL. Improvements in recent years include an expanded roof covering 100% of overnight hay and water pens as well as a redesigned ring scale with automated doors. This website is another attempt to keep our current and potential customers updated and informed as the cattle business remains fast and fluid in nature. This site is updated on a periodic basis, so check back often for continued updates. If you have questions or need of any of our market services, please contact us by phone
or in the suggestion box located near the bottom of the home page. Please include contact information so that we can clearify questions and properly address suggestions.

We can be contacted by phone at 573-324-2295 for additional service. Thank you again for visiting and best wishes to you and yours through the year. You will find more info by clicking on EMCC Information found above in the mast of this page...

Thanks again....

As an example of what you will find here check out this mid-July 12 posting.

Our friend has suffered a backlash from the authorship of the National Feeder Cattle Weekly Summary from July 13th. This is the video that got Market Reporter Corbitt Wall in trouble with the Washington DC bosses, take special care to listen between 4:56 thru 5:51 on the video... I believe that everything that Corbitt reports here to be factual, but as a government employee he isn't allowed to point it out ... especially when the facts you are pointing out goes against the direction that political of the day in the Capitol.
