Established in 1922, Equity Cooperative Livestock Sales Association aids producers in the marketing, managing and financing of their agricultural businesses. Equity operates 14 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, American grillers say the one meat they grill most often is beef. That is something to be proud of! Thanks to all cattle producers who take great pride in providing healthy and nutritious beef for you and your family. We enjoy honoring and recognizing all of our member beef farms.

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 nad 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.

InFocus Genetics Program
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.

Lamb Pool Schedule - We look forward to working with you in 2018!

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.
