A quick roundup of this weeks offering at THEE BIGGEST sale barns across the Midwest!
Heard ONLY on American radio stations across the nation and online at!

Welcome to a Monday, never fun day, edition of America’s Hot Barn Report on this great American radio station. Got a big week lined up with some important interviews concerning the beef industry also our own rising star ranch raised Karina Jones will be in on Friday to enlighten you on policy and mandatory country of origin labeling progress which by the way seems good…

At the board of trade last week October live cattle, formerly known as fat cattle, closed down to a meager 122.80… which further adds fuel to the fire of the impending war between, packers, producers and politicians… and for once its feels like a lot of the politicians are on the side of the common man instead of the big four. For those that are seeking re-election in rural states… that might be a good idea, that’s just my personal opinion and not necessarily the opinion of this great American radio station… although chances are it is… Confused? Me too.

Hog, sheep and goat sale goin’ down today at the Platte Livestock Market, but, hold your horses… the big annual BBQ sale and R-CalfUSA rollover auction will go down this Wednesday… just a massive calf and yearling sale featuring a plethora of char cross and limousine cross packages, take a gander at the all-star lineup and buy safely online at You’ll wanna be in the seats for the free BBQ and ice cream at the PLM, meet the folks from R-CalfUSA and Sioux Steel Company at this meeting of the tribes in Platte So Dak!
