In light of this announcement, effective immediately our market facility will no longer permit non-ambulatory (USDA has defined non-ambulatory as disabled and unable to stand, walk or rise on their own), or bad/cancer eye cattle to be off-loaded at our livestock market nor will they be sold for slaughter.
