September 14, 2005 history was made in the cattle industry. Florida's newest sale barn opened for business with a sale of 2, 674 head of cattle that would test its innovative, state of the art construction. All eyes were on the small town of Arcadia, which entered into the cattle auction business in l939 with the beginning of Arcadia State Livestock Market on May 3rd. The new barn known as ARCADIA STOCKYARD would make a historical debut into the cattle business with every inch of the building being tested from the new barn equipment to the new computer software.Sale days for the ARCADIA STOCKYARD are both Monday and Wednesday. We have added the Monday sale to give you flexibility when scheduling the sale of your cattle. For the Monday sale, you can bring your cattle in Sunday from 10: 00am until 7: 00pm or sale day. Wednesday's you can deliver your cattle Tuesday from 8: 00am until 9: 00pm or sale day. Both of our sales are well represented by all the buyers.The first new option for the arriving cattlemen and cattlewomen of this area would be the drive through unloading chute. That's right " drive through, stop your truck and our gates swing to meet your trailer and your cattle walk off with ease to start the selling process. There is no need to back your trailer to the chute. The market staff is eager to check your cattle in and get you on your way to continue the busy day that you have planned.Cattle then proceed from the unloading area to a series of pens 7 deep. Straight in and straight out to the hot corner area for processing ; they are worked by knowledgeable cowboys on horseback, which helps make this less stressful for your cattle. There they are handled through a maze of air gates and chutes flexible in the ability to keep grown cattle and calves headed to the auction ring.Upon entry into the auction ring cattle are weighed on a well-constructed set of scales, supported by load cells on all four corners for accuracy. While in the ring our auctioneer works the order buyers and local ranchers as they competitively bid. Top dollar for your cattle is our goal! We are committed to customer service and satisfaction. With that in mind, we will work tirelessly to gain your confidence in us to make your marketing experience pleasant.We want you to feel at home and comfortable as you watch cattle trends for the day.
