The trade and sale of livestock has been a fixture throughout history; helping to shape the way people live and the growth of the United States. Changes in technology and convenience to livestock producers have impacted the way livestock are marketed but the importance and viability of the auction has remained strong throughout the years.
The organization that is now known as Livestock Marketing Association began as the National Livestock Auction Association in 1947. Since then, Livestock Marketing Association has served as the leading advocate for the livestock marketing industry, serving as the voice for local livestock auction markets on state and federal legislative and regulatory issues.
Since 1947 the core value of Livestock Marketing Association has remained the same, a belief in the competitive auction method and True Price Discovery. Livestock Auctions are a vital part of the livestock industry, serving producers and assuring a fair, competitive price through the auction method of selling.
The office of President of Livestock Marketing Association has been held over the years by auction market owners, operators and livestock dealers with a commitment to improving the industry that they hold dear. Each of these men has a unique story but each led LMA through an ever changing industry.
