Tennessee Hereford Marketing Program
Wednesday, July 10, 2024, Columbia Livestock Center in Columbia, TN

   Since its inception in 1999 the Tennessee Hereford Marketing Program serves as a model for states across the country for utilizing Hereford genetics in a niche feeder calf market.  The bi-annual sale (in April and November) hosted by Tennessee Livestock Producers in Columbia, provides southeast Hereford producers an opportunity to capitalize on assembling loads of healthy and feed lot ready animals at a premium. 

   This sale encourages a protocol of 45 day weaning, use of a non-generic wormer and an option of 2 vaccination programs that include one round of shots at weaning and another 14-28 days.  Data shows that steers that participate in this program receive a 20% premium over regular weekly auctions.
