"I would not have found the replacement females I was looking for had it not been for Cattle-Exchange." says Bill Dix from Iowa. He saw the cattle he wanted in Kansas and went right to them, saving a lot of time and money.

The benefit for buyers on the site is that it allows you to search for the type of cattle you are looking for and narrow results based on geographic location, breed and more. For sellers, allows you to provide detailed information on what interests buyers and also post videos and photos, which brings in more page views and potential buyers.

A buyer recently posted on's Facebook page: "Thanks Cattle-Exchange for hooking me up with the cattle seller. I picked up what appears to be a great large herd at a reasonable price today."

You can find out what has to offer by going to and also find of on Facebook and on Twitter @CattleExchange.
