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 55 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 recently 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.
