SALE RESULTS ARE FOR USE BY VBPA MEMBERS ONLY! Please do not share the report with others, but rather refer their request for information to the email above. Breaking even on our sales continues to be a challenge. It is clear that our sales have value to far more folks than participate in these sales since many use the sale results as a basis for their own private negotiations. Since our membership subsidizes the sales, it is only fair that those who benefit from the sale and the sale results support them through their membership. We hope that all who wish to use the sale results become members and not only support the value they are deriving from the sales, but also enjoy the many other benefits of being a member of Vermont Beef Producers Association.
