Central Order Buying
Central Order Buying (COB) works in both feeder and finished animal purchase and sales. COB's choice fed division effectively adds to the competition between buyers on the market. COB's feeder division helps both the producer needing feeders (cattle, feeder pigs, or lambs) as well as the producer selling stock in the auction. The packer purchase division of the COB fills orders for slaughter livestock from packers and processors not located directly on the market. It has broadened the demand for the livestock offered for sale at the markets upon which Central operates. Over the years, Central had contributed immeasurably to the development of healthy competitive situation, which has meant higher returns to producers.
