Livestock Marketing School Coming to
Helena, Montana June 30-July 1, 2020

We have made the decision to hold this school unless something really disastrous happens! If you register and pay and, for whatever reason, you can’t come, we will give you a full refund! No questions asked.

Also, if you’d rather just keep track of the situation and have us hold your space without payment, please email me at, and I will hold your spot. Then, we can take your payment at the school.

We need to have a count for our handouts and snacks, so do need to know who’s planning on coming. We can take payment the first day of the school.

Meeting Location—

Jorgenson’s Inn & Suites
1714 11th Avenue
Helena, Mt 59601
Say you are with “Hand ‘n Hand” for a discount on your sleeping room!


June 30, 8 am to 5 pm and July 1, 8 am to about 3 pm (we will stay and answer questions as long as necessary!)

School Outline—

Using lecture, questions/answers, current market data, and actual math calculations (bring a calculator), we will cover—

  • Know and Understand Yourself
  • The only price that matters (hint, there won’t be any crystal ball involved)
  • Know your resources (money, feed, livestock, and time) and how to manage them
  • Sell/Buy compared to Buy/Sell
  • Find Relationships and determine what to sell and what to buy
  • Marketing for the Cow/Calf Producer
  • Determine the Value of Breeding Stock
  • Make a profit and stay in business!


Attendees will also get the opportunity to buy the new book, “Proper Livestock Marketing 101” by Bud Williams for half price, only $200! We will have some books with us to sell on-site. If you know for sure you want one, let us know, and we will put your name on it!

Registration Fee

No charge for interested kids age 18 and under attending with a parent. Please email or call us so we can have a count for meals.

Charge for adults is $500 per person. Two people from the same family/ranch can “buy one, get one half off” and pay $750. Three people from the same ranch can just use the discount for one of the three attendees. If five or more come from the same ranch, call us for pricing.

Lunch, coffee, and snacks are included both days.
