Current Price Trend
Business is always changing and evolving. The cattle business is no exception. The State of Florida with budget cuts did away with the market report we had relied on for years. Once Carl realized there was no way to keep this program he made a commitment to bring a Computer Generated Weighted Price Trend to his customers. Working with the programmers of our sale day software (ASI) they worked diligently to bring a report that keeps this valuable service available for you. Carl has been visiting with the various Cattlemen’s Associations in surrounding counties helping them to understand how this market report is generated. Any questions about this service please give us a call at 863-494-3737.

This is an important form that the buyers require us to have on file. If you receive this form with your check, please do not ignore it. Please sign it and return the form to the market.
Branding Wall – Auction Ring Wall of Brands
The Arcadia Stockyard is proud to honor the memory of the Arcadia State Livestock Market and its customers with our Wall of Brands. This wall reminds us of our beginnings and encourages us to stay committed to continued service and growth in the beef industry. Help us to continue your family’s heritage in the cattle business by letting us place your brand on this historic wall. Just bring your brand and Carl will arrange to have it placed on the wall.
Café – Serving Home Cooked Specials and Delicious Stockyard Burgers
As an added convenience we have a restaurant offering daily specials and sandwiches on sale days. Come by and visit with your neighbors and have a good meal. The Stockyard Burger is hand-pattied, juicy and always a treat.
If that doesn’t fill you up, Mary always has a homemade dessert to tickle your taste buds. It’s just a relaxing way to get a bite to eat and catch up on the news with friends and neighbors.
Special Fall Sales (see calendar)
Keep your eye on our calendar for any special sales we plan for the fall season. We will schedule bull sales, replacement heifer sales, and our annual slaughter cow and bull sale. We work to provide you with quality bulls and heifers to purchase for your herd. Our slaughter sale has historically been a good sale. Don’t forget this important sale when planning to cull your herd.
