How it Works

Marketing the Superior Way

 

Marketing “The Superior Way”   begins with a visit from your Superior representative. The representative views the cattle in their natural surroundings and completes a consignment contract that describes the cattle and the terms and conditions of the sale. The representative also photographs a fair representation of the cattle with a video camera.
 
The consignment contract is submitted to the Brush, Colorado office where the information is entered into a computer database and a catalog is prepared. The Video Auction catalog can be viewed on the Internet one week prior to the auction and the listings can be viewed on the Internet at any time.
 
The video is submitted to Superior’s office in Fort Worth, Texas where it is edited into a short segment to be aired on the Video Auction, Internet Auction or on the Country Page.  The video is also made available on the internet for buyers to view the cattle prior to the auction.  
 
On auction day, buyers and sellers can either be present at the auction site or view the auction via a nationwide satellite broadcast on Dish Network channel 997 or the internet from the comfort of their office or home. 
 
The Video and Internet Auctions are conducted live, with an auctioneer, as cattle are sold to buyers bidding at the auction site, via telephone or on the internet “Click to Bid”.  
 
After the cattle are sold, a livestock contract stating the terms and conditions of the sale is prepared and sent to both the buyer and seller.  Following the auction, the Superior representative contacts all parties to arrange the delivery.
 
On the day of delivery, the Superior representative is present to oversee the sorting and loading of the cattle. At delivery, the seller is issued a check drawn on Superior’s bonded custodial account and payment is due from the buyer upon receipt of the cattle.
 
The cattle are shipped directly from the seller’s farm or ranch to the buyer’s destination, which greatly reduces stress and potential health problems.
 
From the time the Superior representative completes the consignment contract with the seller until the time the cattle are loaded onto the buyer’s truck, personal hands-on attention is given to make sure the sales contract is followed completely.

How To Sell
“The Superior Way”

Superior has created a national livestock market where prices are discovered, through competitive bidding, without regard to local climate conditions or demand. Through its nationwide marketing network, Superior Livestock Auction can serve sellers and buyers throughout the United States.

Cattle are sold on contract for immediate to future delivery, whichever meets your needs and market expectations. Unlike conventional marketing methods, you have the opportunity to offer your cattle, at auction, to over 8,500 registered buyers while still at your farm or ranch and shown in their natural surroundings.

To begin the process, visit our Find a Representative page and search for the representative or representatives nearest you. Or, you can call the Fort Worth, Texas office at 800.422.2117 or the Brush, Colorado office at 800.523.6610 and the staff will assist you in finding a representative near you.

From June through September, Superior conducts multiple day regional auctions in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Winnemucca, Nevada, Sheridan, Wyoming and Denver, Colorado. Cattle are offered for sale on the Country Page every day of the week.

When you consign your cattle, a Superior Representative will come to your farm or ranch to film your cattle and prepare a consignment contract describing the cattle and stating the terms and conditions of the sale. This information is printed in a sale catalog that is available for buyers to view in print or online. 

If you choose to sell on a Video Auction the catalog is mailed or emailed to potential buyers one week prior to the auction. It is also available on the internet a week prior to the auction.

  • Video Auctions

  • Country Page

Superior has an auction every other Friday and Country Page sales daily.  The Video Auctions are broadcast live from Superior’s office and Studio in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards every other week during the majority of the year.  From June through September, Superior conducts “special” multiple day regional auctions in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Winnemucca, Nevada, Sheridan, Wyoming and Denver, Colorado.  Our Superior Weekly Auctions are scheduled every Thursday that there is not a video auction or a Holiday.
