The Herdbuilder Replacement Female Sale is a marketing program conducted by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s Animal Science team and the Alabama Beef Cattle Improvement Association. This sale has become known for top quality and top genetics in the consignments offered. It is known as one of the top replacement heifer sales throughout the Southeast. Most consignments come from herds that have participated in the sale for many years, a testament to the quality of the cattle offered for sale. Heifers are all screened for quality and come from reputable cattle operations across Alabama.
The Herdbuilder Sale, begun in 1999, was developed to add value to quality heifers raised in the Black Belt through enhanced management protocols. Prior to the advent of the Herdbuilder sale, many of the sale consignors were sending replacement quality heifers through traditional feeder cattle marketing chains thereby losing improved genetic gains. Now producers know that good records and sound management can mean substantial returns. Over the years, buyers have learned that top quality animals are offered at this sale which have the potential to make long term profitable replacements in their herds.
