Conference Call Buying

For those who cannot attend the sale and would like to listen and bid over the phone, we are again using Superior Livestock Auction.  If you prefer you may bid through a conference call with Bill Pelton.  Please see page 3 of the 2018 catalog for details on how to register.

Internet Bidding

Again this year will be the ability to watch the sale live over the Internet and 'click-to-bid' using your mouse.  This service is provided by Superior Livestock Auction.  Please refer to page 3 of the 2018 catalog for details on how to register.

Sight-Unseen Purchase by Mail or Phone

If you are unable to attend the sale, we can help you select the bulls or females to fit your needs.  Give us a phone call, letter, fax or e-mail (refer to the 'Contact Us' page), and we can make arrangements to handle bidding according to your directions.  Bulls are bought at the lowest price, and satisfaction is guaranteed on bulls purchased 'sight-unseen'.  Many of our repeat customers buy their bulls this way.  To provide us adequate time to assist you, please contact us well before noon of the day prior to the sale.

Free Delivery

We provide free delivery for all bulls throughout the continental U.S.  If you bring a trailer to haul your own purchases, $200 will be deducted from the price of each bull.  Heifers will be delivered free within 400 miles, and at cost for additional miles.  Most of the sale cattle will be delivered from 1 to 3 weeks after the sale, although we will try to accommodate if you need your bulls right away.  Although there occasionally are limitations, in most cases we can deliver the cattle directly to your ranch.


On sale day payments can be made with cash, check payable to Beckton Stock Farm Inc., or Visa / Mastercard.

Additional Sale Information

  • The animals sell in catalog order.  We will have a Internet and conference call bidding available.  Be sure to register before hand (see above).
  • All bulls have passed a rigorous fertility exam that included live semen evaluation, scrotal measurements, and reproductive tract examinations.
  • Beckton has a comprehensive herd-wide health program which includes vaccinations for 7-Way, IBR, BVD, PI3, BRSV, Lepto, and ivermectin.  The heifers are also vaccinated for bangs and vibrio.
  • When a genetic test was developed by RAAA for osteopetrosis (OS), Beckton tested every sire in use in our program, as well as our major AI sires.  Every Beckton bred sire (nearly 80 in total) tested OS Free.
  • We plan to have semen collected on some of the bulls before the sale.  We will also work with the buyer to collect bulls after the sale.
  • Buyer receives full possession and one half semen interest in all the bulls in the catalog.  Seller is retaining one half interest in all bulls in the catalog.  This is done so we can use some of the bulls in herd and reserve the right to collect and market semen on these bulls.  Any collection on our behalf would be at our expense and could be done during the off-season and at the convenience of the buyer.  The buyer would have the option to share in the collection and retain semen for the buyer’s use also.  If semen is marketed by either party, seller receives one half royalty interest on gross semen sales, and buyer receives one half interest.  Regardless of semen collection and marketing, the buyer retains full possession, full pasture use rights, and full salvage value in these bulls.

Please see page 87 of the 2018 catalog for further details of sale terms and conditions.
