On The Move . . .
The Equity Stratford auction market opened in the fall of 1959. Much has changed in those 55 years, and the times have placed additional requirements which cannot be met at our present location. To meet those needs and better serve our producers, Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association has recently invested in property south of the highway 29 and 97 intersection and plans to build a new, state-of-the-art facility. The new location, only eight miles north of our present location will provide our patrons, truckers and buyers with more convenient access.

Sow Packers to Require Premises ID Tags in 2015
In an effort to improve pre-harvest traceability and improve national disease surveillance in the pork industry, many major U.S. packers and processors will require a USDA-approved, official premises identification number (PIN) swine tag as a condition of sale for breeding stock beginning January 1, 2015. Contact the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Corsortium at (888) 808-1910 if you need to ohtain or register for a premises identification. They are vailable to take calls and answer questions Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
