Facility & Health Considerations
Livestock Laws
Sales & Purchase
Health & Transport

Facility: For anyone who buys miniature cattle at an auction, they need to consider the facility and any possible health precautions (some livestock auction barns have tons of cattle that sell through them weekly, including cull cattle that could be harboring disease).

Auction Management & Transparency: Another precaution to take to check beforehand is getting to know the sales management team, and to inquire about their business transparency. Alternative Auction animal lots are often sold at a premium. Therefore there should be reasonable proof that these cattle are not someone's cull (for example a possible freemartin). At any specialty consignment sale, the consignors/ sellers should always be proudly disclosed along with their current contact information, to be able to answer pre-purchase, or any future buyer questions about management, herd health, breed composition, pedigree, etc. If these critical details are being kept secret or withheld, that is a major red flag. To protect your investment, never pay more than meat (by the pound) price in that situation, and have your veterinarian on call.

Be a Responsible Buyer: Buyers are responsible for understanding cattle industry and sale terms. Auctions are exciting, and when a buyer gets carried away by cutenss or when bidding, he may forget what he originally came there for. It is important for buyers to educate themselves beforehand; and understand the difference between exposed, bred, and vet-checked, guaranteed bred, or, the difference between the terms registered and purebred and fullblood, etc.

Know the local laws when you buy, sell, show or transport cattle across state lines. If you are moving breeding age cattle without the proper paperwork they can be impounded and (worst case scenario, possibly even sent to slaughter if exposed to certain diseases). Testing requirements vary according to their age, gender, origin and destination states. Find out about any local legal restrictions buying mature herd bulls vs. virgin bulls. Contact your local large animal veterinarian, who does health certificates for interstate transport. If international, you will also deal with a border state veterinarian. Also check on which states have brand laws (another site with a list of state brand agencies).
