How to Advertise Cows or Hay for Sale
Dairy Marketing is offered through a unique program called Cows For Sale. This service provides dairy producers the potential to market their animals both nationally and internationally at a low cost. It also offers producers the opportunity to acquire a list of animals available for purchase.
FAST AND EASY:
By simply indicating to your Minnesota DHIA Field Representative which cows you would like to market, the cows are automatically added to our electronic Cows For Sale system on test day.
For a fraction of the price of newspaper advertising, you can list your dairy animals for 60 days. Members can advertise animals for the introductory price of $2.50 per animal with a maximum of $50 per herd. Animals can be listed for additional 60-day periods for the same price. Owners who list whole herds for sale must be on open disclosure.
The Cows For Sale listing is available in either printed or electronic form. Unlike local newspapers, Cows For Sale has the potential to reach national and international buyers. More buyers mean higher prices for your animals.
On-demand copies of the list containing the most current animals is $50, or you can subscribe to the monthly publication for $100 per year, $50 for Minnesota DHIA members.
Buyers who are looking for animals that meet specific criterion can purchase customized lists of animals. The price for made to order lists vary based on the number of items used to select and sort animals. Animals can be selected by any combination of age, reproductive status, production, location or any other data item we store in our Minnesota DHIA database.
