Jim Schaben Jr. and Jon Schaben purchased the West Point Sales Co. from John and Mary Ahrens in October, 2006. They renamed the business West Point Livestock Auction with the goal of offering the local cattle producers an updated facility and an aggressive market to merchandise all classes of livestock.

Several things have changed since 2006, most notably the addition and expansion of several new pipe pens, taking the one time capacity easily over 4000 head.  A new modern vet facility which reduces stress and makes processing cattle go so much smoother.  New load-out facilities have also been added which speeds up that process considerably.  

Cattle auctions are held on Thursdays with finished cattle starting at 10AM, followed by weigh cows/bulls, feeder cattle at 12:30 and bred cows/pairs to follow.  Special feeder auctions are held on Mondays with several of these featuring all weaned/vaccinated calves.

In the summer of 2009, Brian Brester, of Howells, stepped in as General Manager, bringing with him a lifetime background in the livestock industry.

If you would like Brian to visit your operation for a no-obligation appraisal of your livestock, please call him at the office, (402) 372-2493, on his cell, (402) 750-5821, or on his home phone, (402) 986-1259.
