Accepting Applications
(we are currently fully employed, but our always happy to accept applications should an opening develope)
We have had several part-time stockyard labor positions open, are looking to add to our auction market team. Individuals that can be dependable, responsible, w/positive attitude, ability to work well with team mates, and to positively engage with our customers when called upon, and the ability to be physically active for long stretches of time are the basic requirements for success. Positions start at $10 per hour or more depending on experience and aptitude, we are eager and willing to train inexperienced applicants that otherwise appear to be a good fit for open positions. Positions involve working the sale every Friday and occasionally some Thursdays and possibly on a rare Saturday. Employment at EMCC carries some additional small perks in addition to a weekly check. These are mostly entry level labor positions. Employees in these positions routinely have advanced or gained valuable work experience to successfully move to better positions with us or with other employers.  Applications are available at the office, by emailed or online.

NOTICE TO OUT OF STATE CONSIGNORS: Any dairy cattle entering Missouri from out of state, including steers but excluding animals for slaughter only, are required by the State of Missouri Animal Health Dept to have a negative TB test. If such animals arrive at EMCC without this test, they will be quarantined a week and tested at sellers expense or sold strictly for slaughter only. We don't make the rules, but we are required to follow them. If you have dairy cattle you wish to sell in Missouri you can contact me (Jon) and I can try to advise on your individual situation.
Notice To Consignors and Buyers: Consigners are asked to have on file in the office a USA origin affidavit to comply with the Country of Origin Labeling laws. You can view and download this by clicking on the "EMCC Forms" up near the top of this page, print a copy off your computer; fill out and mail into us or present it with your cattle at check-in. Buyers who have not yet established a buying relationship are asked to file a with the office a "Buyers Registration Form" also available in the "EMCC Forms" tab at the top of the page for downloading and filling out prior to bidding at the sales.
Notice of Breeding Bull Requirements … 
For a bull to be consider and offered for sale as a breeding bull a few conditions must be reached, otherwise they are merely pound bulls as far as livestock market regulations require. First a valid positive Breeding Soundness Exam ( BSE )test must accompany the bull. To be valid it must be completed and dated within 30 days of sale date.  Additionally, bulls over 2 years of age or non-virgin bulls must also provide a Negative Trich test at the time of sale which requires approximately a week to obtain from the laboratory assuming no holidays or mishaps. To be valid it must be completed and dated within 30 days of sale date AND the bull would have to be quarantined away from females until after the sale. Virgin bulls can sell with a signed virgin affidavit. The livestock market vet cannot accommodate these requirements the week of the sale. If you wish to offer a bull as a potential breeding bull the seller will need to proactively satisfy the breeding bull requirements before the week of the sale. Bulls offered without meeting the breeding bull requirements … are pound/slaughter bulls.

Wuhan/COVID-19 Virus:
We continue to be cautious but restrictions have loosened up a good bit. We’d like to thank all our buyers, consignors and friends for their patience and understanding during the whole ordeal. We have no idea if Wuhan Virus will spike again but we will deal with that later if it should. We still suggest that some of us due to individual health and risk factors will want to continue to practice social distancing and refrain from gathering at our auction. We do broadcast the action and now accept bids online through by prequalified and preregistered buyers.  Thanks again for help us do our part to “flatten the curve” and remain open and of service through unprecedented times….

Our friend has suffered a backlash from the authorship of the National Feeder Cattle Weekly Summary from July 13th. This is the video that got Market Reporter Corbitt Wall in trouble with the Washington DC bosses, take special care to listen between 4:56 thru 5:51 on the video... I believe that everything that Corbitt reports here to be factual, but as a government employee he isn't allowed to point it out ... especially when the facts you are pointing out goes against the direction that political of the day in the Capitol.
