A Message From Mike

I’m writing today to say THANK YOU, and to ask for your continued patience and cooperation.

Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and support as we have adjusted our operations to
meet the challenges we are all facing.

We know our members’ livelihood depends on marketing their livestock, and that we are all an
essential part of the nation’s food supply.

During this time, we are determined to continue to serve each of you, while ensuring the health
and safety of you and our employees. In order to do so, we are diligently working to limit
attendees at our auctions to active buyers only. We also ask that if you are exhibiting any signs
of illness (cough, fever) that you do not attend. Our market managers have been given full
authority to take action to comply with these measures so that we can continue to operate our
auctions and to serve you. Additionally, we urge everyone to comply
with “The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America”.

Should you wish to move your livestock directly versus auction, please contact your local UPI
representative, and we will work with you to do so.

While the future is still unknown, I hope that you know how much we value you and that we
are here to support you during this crisis – and beyond. We will continue to communicate
any additional changes should the need arise. In the meantime, if there is anything you need
at any time, please feel free to contact us.
