Annual Membership Meeting and Fall Female Sale Scheduled in October
A*L*O*T will hold its Annual Membership Meeting on October 8, 2004. The meeting will again be held at the Titus County Fair Sale Facility in Mt. Pleasant, TX and will begin at 5 PM.[ Back to Index ]
The meeting will be held the night before the Fall Female Sale which will begin at noon on October 9, 2009. Sale Secretary Beth Wicker reports that 81 lots from 25 members have been consigned. The consignment period closed on August 14, 2004.
Consignors should have already started conditioning their cattle for the sale. It takes about a hundred pounds of gain to add one Body Condition Score to a mature animal.
Make plans to attend the sale and pass the word to any friends and neighbors who have not attended in the past. Stress to them that there will be plenty of quality Angus seedstock and a good meal as well.
Consignors should remember that all cattle are to be accompanied by current pregnancy status, determined by a practicing vet, and a health certificate for interstate shipment. All animals over 12 months old must have a negative TB test within 30 days of the sale. The sale committee asks that you have your animals at the sale facility by 2 PM on Friday, October 8.
The A*L*O*T Spring Bull Sale will be held on February 26, 2005 at the Titus County Fair Sale Facility in Mt. Pleasant, Texas. The consignment period for this sale will open on December 17, 2004 and will remain open until December 31, 2004.[ Back to Index ]
Bulls must be less than five years of age on sale day which means they must have been born AFTER Feb 26, 2000. Consignors are encouraged to enter gain tested bulls in the sale, but gain testing is not a requirement for the sale.

Fall Bull Sale Nears
The A*L*O*T Angus Association will hold its annual Fall Bull Sale on Saturday, November 27, 2004 at the Titus County Fair Sale Facility in Mt. Pleasant, Texas.[ Back to Index ]
The consignment period opened on August 24, 2004 and will run until September 24, 2004. Consignors are asked to have their cattle in place no later than 2 PM on Friday, November 26.
Begin conditioning your animals early as it does take some time to put an animal into good flesh. We will continue to use the LSU Scoring System to rank the bulls for the sale order. We have received a great deal of praise for this system from buyers. The ranking chart is on page 7.
Consignors are reminded that bulls who do not score between 1 and 15 on this chart will not go through the sale ring and consignment fees for these bulls will not be refunded.
Bulls must have a complete set of individual production EPDs (BW,WW, Milk, and YW) to be cataloged. Sire and dam EPDs will not be used in the catalog.
