Sheep

If you are interested in selling your commercial feeder lambs or breeding ewes in one of our upcoming video sales, please contact us. Our website includes a sample contract that outlines the information you would need to provide in order to consign sheep with WVM. This sheet will be filled out by a WVM rep and approved by you. It stipulates how the sheep will be represented at the sale and provides buyers with the information they need. It should be as accurate as possible to avoid problems on shipping day.

Terms for sheep consignments with Western Video Market are outlined here, but for more information, contact a rep, or e-mail us at wvm@wvmcattle.com.
