2020 Midwest Stud Ram Sale canceled due to COVID-19 concerns

Given the current circumstances and social gathering restrictions related to COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart that Heartland Livestock Services, along with the Midwest Stud Ram Sale Executive Committee, have concluded that the 2020 Midwest Stud Ram Sale will be canceled. This decision was not made lightly, and we believe it is in the best interest of the health and safety of consignors, buyers, our staff, fairgrounds staff, and the community at large.

We considered the advice of local experts and authorities when making this tough decision. Collectively, we reviewed the State of Missouri’s business re-opening guidelines and consulted with the Missouri State Fairgrounds and the Administrator of Pettis County Public Health to seek guidance related to large public gatherings, such as the Midwest Stud Ram Sale. Unfortunately, the confirmed cases of COVID-19 are continuing to increase in Pettis County and the surrounding counties, and local restrictions will remain tighter than those for other areas of Missouri for the foreseeable future.

As promised, we want to ensure you that all entry, vendor, and sponsorship fees will be fully refunded. Fees collected will be automatically refunded if you paid via credit card or returned by mail if you paid with a check. You do not need to take any action to ensure your refund.

As we cancel the 2020 event, we also begin planning for the 2021 Midwest Stud Ram Sale. We’ll be offering red-shirted 2020 Yearling Ewes to enter the Brood Ewe Class in 2021. Watch for more details on this offering prior to next years sale.

A reminder that the Midwest Stud Ram Sale is changing dates in 2021. New dates will fall on the second week following Memorial Day! Adjust your reservations and watch for updates to the entry and ad deadlines next year.
2021- JUNE 14-19

We truly look forward to seeing you all again in Sedalia next year, and we appreciate your understanding during this unprecedented time. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
