Weishaar, Lowderman toasted by Livestock Marketeers in Denver

The Livestock Marketeers held their 49th annual banquet on Jan. 18, 2014 during the National Western Stock Show in Denver Colo. The Livestock Marketeers is a fraternal organization of livestock auctioneers and fieldmen formed in 1965 to encourage younger members of the industry to succeed in their chosen profession. The first banquet was held during the 1966 NWSS. Every year since, two to four select livestock auctioneers and fieldmen from across the U.S. have been honored at their annual banquet, for a total of 110 honorees.

The 2014 inductees to the prestigious Livestock Marketeers Honor Roll were Auctioneers, Lynn Weishaar, Reva, S.D., and Jack Lowderman, Macomb, Ill. Both of these auctioneers have sold purebred and commercial cattle sales for over 40 years across the U.S. and Canada. Ironically Lynn and Jack met for the first time at an auctioneers contest in Canada in the late 1960s. Also honored posthumously was Terry Robinson, Bismarck, N.D., long time fieldman for N.D. REC Magazine and Farm and Ranch Guide. Robinson passed away in May of 2013.

The basic goal of the Livestock Marketeers is to bring together people with a shared interest in improving the marketing of purebred cattle.
