Get ready to place your bids at the 2021 WV Beef Expo


TAYLOR COUNTY—The WV Beef Expo committee is glad to announce there will be a reduced version of the 2021 WV Beef Expo this year.  It will occur on Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, 2021 at WVU Jackson’s Mill, Weston WV. 

Four local farms, Knotts Polled Hereford Farm, Summers Angus Farm, Mouser Charolais Farm, and Morrow Hill Angus Farm, will represent the Taylor County area.

The 2021 WV Beef Expo will be very different with several events and activities canceled for this year because of Covid-19.  However, over 150 head of Red Angus, Polled Hereford, Simmental, Angus and Charolais cattle will show, be on display and offered for sale.

Join us at 3:00 p.m. on Friday April 9 for the Polled Hereford Show followed by the Angus Show. 

On Saturday, April 10, sales are scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. with the Red Angus, 11:00 the Polled Hereford, 12:30 the Simmental, 1:30 the Angus, and 3:00 the Charolais.

Miss Michala Williams of Mineral County will be crowned the new WV Beef Queen Saturday at noon.  Miss Williams will reign over the 31st WV Beef Expo.  During the coming year she will represent West Virginia and the Beef Industry Council by promoting beef at various events.

While we are planning for in-person sales on April 10, nothing is guaranteed.  The sales will be broadcast live by DVAuction.com and you can bid online without having to attend the Beef Expo in person. 

If the in-person event can’t happen, the cattle sales will be conducted as a live auction on www.DVAuction.com only.  All catalogs of the sale are already online at DVAuction. 

To check the status of the sales before traveling to Jackson’s Mill, you can consult the WV Beef Expo listing on www.DVAuction.com; check the www.wvcattlemen.org website; contact one of the breed sale chairs; or contact Bruce Loyd at 304-269-4660 or [email protected]. 

If you attend the sale in person, please know masks will be required.  If you would like a sale catalog, please contact Bruce Loyd at 304-269-4660.
