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.
