Vaccination Program

SEMO Livestock Sales, LLC
Vaccination Program Options

Producers choosing to add to the value of their calves can now follow our set program of:
One Round of Vaccinations    or    Two Rounds of Vaccinations.

How the program works:

Producers will buy certified ear tags from SEMO Livestock Sales.  The cost is 40 cents per head. Tags can be picked up at the office on Tuesday or call for other arrangements.
Office:  573-243-4255     Neal Franke:  573-382-0003

If a producer chooses to give two rounds of vaccinations, a notch will be put in each ear tag to show they are double vaccinated.

Vaccines are to be performed at least 21 days prior to sale. Castrating or banding bull calves is preferred when giving either first or second rounds of vaccinations.

If weaning, allow 45 days before sale date.

Vaccination Certification Forms must be completed and signed at the time of delivery to the sale barn along with receipts showing proof of purchase of medications.

Participants in our program or a certified program listed below will be eligible for a $5.00 per head refund after the calves sell at SEMO Livestock Sales. There must be at least 10 head to qualify for the refund.

It is recommended you consult a veterinarian concerning any vaccinations you give.

Vaccinations will be available for purchase at SEMO Livestock Sales, LLC.

Please notify us at least 7 days prior to the sale so we may advertise and let our buyers know of your value added cattle.

Our preconditioned sale dates are the first and third Tuesday of the month.  It is recommended you bring your vaccinated cattle to these sales.
