Farmer-writer has site for online cattle sales

A couple in Buffalo, Ky., created, a virtual stockyard, as an economical way to connect cattle buyers and sellers in the South, Linda Ireland reports for the LaRue County Herald News.

Limousin cattle farmer Lanny Vincent, co-founder of the website and a sports correspondent for the weekly newspaper, told Ireland there is a similar website for cattle farmers in the West. Sellers on Vincent's site can list cattle for sale at no charge or pay $25 to include a photo. Buyers can browse the listings for free. Vincent collects fees from the seller only if the cattle are sold through the website, Ireland writes.
