Livestock producers have always been able to rely on the Miles City Livestock Commission to hold a weekly cattle sale every Tuesday. Even a fire, like the one on June 13th when an electrical fire completely burned down the auction barn, only kept them down for a very short time. Within 10 days, remains of the former sale barn had been removed and the weekly cattle sales were again being held. Temporary accommodations were quickly assembled to keep the Miles City Livestock weekly sales moving, just now set up outside.
But today, they are fully back and better than ever. This week’s cattle sale is being held in the brand new Miles City Livestock Commission building completed just in time for the October 6 sale, as promised. Northern Ag’s Lane Norlund attended the sale and spoke with the owner, Bart Meged about the tremendous effort that was put forth to make this happen in such a short amount of time.
If there is one thing to say about Bart and Misty Meged, the crew at Miles City Livestock and everyone that helped resurrect this key component of eastern Montana agriculture to its new glory, is that hard work and determination pay off.
