Established in 1922, Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association aids producers in the marketing, managing and financing of their agricultural businesses. Equity operates 12 auction markets and has collection points in Ettrick and Thorp, Wisconsin, and Menominee, Michigan, and has a hog and cattle marketing center in Arlington, Wisconsin.  Please take some time to explore the many facets of our cooperative.

May is National Beef Month
May Beef Month is a great opportunity to kick off the summer grilling season. When it comes to grilling, nearly three out of four American grillers say the one meat they grill most often is beef. That is something to be proud of! According to the USDA, there are 3.55 million head of cattle in the state of Wisconsin. Cattle producers take pride in providing healthy and nutritious beef for you and your family. We enjoy honoring and recognizing all of our patron beef farms.

Over-the-Counter (OTC) Livestock Hedging Contracts
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.

On The Move . . .
The Equity Stratford auction market opened in the fall of 1959. Much has changed in those 58 years, and the times have placed additional requirements which cannot be met at our present location. To meet those needs and better serve our producers, Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association has invested in property south of the highway 29 and 97 intersection and plans to build a new, state-of-the-art facility. The new location, only eight miles north of our present location will provide our patrons, truckers and buyers with more convenient access. Stay tuned.
