Dominique’s Stockyard Cattleman’s Association Benefit Sale set for June 12
By: Keith Fontenot
On Tuesday, June 24th, Dominiqueís Stockyard in Opelousas will host the Annual Benefit Sale for the Evangeline and St. Landry Parish Cattlemanís Associations.
On this regular sale day Dominique’s will donate one percent of the gross revenue of all cattle sold from Evangeline and St. Landry Parish on that day back to their Parish Cattleman’s Association. This money is a donation from Dominique’s and is not taken from any extra commission charged. Dominique’s hosts this sale every year to show their appreciation to local cattlemen for their longtime patronage and support. This sale does usually enhance the number of cattle being brought in and usually attracts more cattle and a few more buyers.
So, if you have cattle you are planning to sell, if you sell on this date, it not only benefits you but also your Parish Association.
