You just heard world champion livestock auctioneer Jared Miller as he rattled off the call of the auctioneer at 7 Rivers Livestock Commission in Emmett, Idaho. It was a special day. The annual fall feeder cattle sale showed an appreciation of cow men as owners provided free meals to everyone. This year brought the opportunity to hear the best in the world sell cattle. Miller, from Leon, Iowa, says auction barns are an important part of rural America. “Livestock auctions are really important for the local communities. When people sell their cattle at auction, they are going to do their banking a lot of the time. They will stop at the grocery store, at the local gas station. It provides jobs and is so much more than a chance to sell your livestock.”
