June is Dairy Month; Time to Celebrate
June is Dairy Month, and this is the perfect time to celebrate and recognize dairy farmers! Thanks to all dairy farmers for providing healthy, wholesome and nutritious products to feed the world. Let's support our dairy farmers and plan a day or more as they invite us to visit their farms and enjoy breakfast or brunch.

New Hog & Feeder Pig Sales Schedule
Effective April 16, 2018, recent regulations by the Wisconsin Department of Animal Health have caused us to make changes in the sale schedules and the hog marketing process at Equity. Click here to view the sales schedule and time at each of our market locations.
We are excited to have teamed up with ABS to provide an opportunity for dairy producers to improve both production and marketing of feeder calves through the InFocus genetics program. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of our partnership and how it can help maximize profits, please click here for the brochure. Call (800) 362-3989, ext. 131 with any questions.
To protect producers from unfavorable changes in the cattle market, we offer Over-the-Counter (OTC) Livestock Hedging Contracts. Unlike exchange-traded futures contracts, Equity's OTC contracts are flexibly sized to meet an individual producer's needs with available contract size as small as 5,000 pounds. They also have no money down, no margin calls, and have reduced fees with a commitment to market through Equity. Want to know more? Click here to review the informational brochure or call James Schroeder at 1-800-362-3989, ext. 132.
