June 24th Billings Livestock Sale Results

Billings Livestock Commission had a great summer horse sale on June 24th in Billings. There was good weather, a big crowd and great previews. The one-day sale total was 583 head of horses sold with a mere 27 head of no sales. The sale proved that there is currently a strong market in all classes. 

The selection included something for everyone as 98 horses brought from $1,500 to $4,000 with the top five averaging $11,540. The horse with the top sale honors had a $15,000 price tag. This horse was a four year old AQHA Gelding called "Chook". Chook was offered by Kruger Performance Horses.

For the loose head section 328 total horses sold and the top end of the weigh ups brought 45 cents. Once again the prospects ruled the market with 30 head bringing $1,000 or more. The top prospect horse topped the market with a $3,300 bid. We look for the processing market to remain fairly strong for the July 22nd event.
