Ogallala: Livestock Market


I’m Carla DeKay and I’m the office manager
at Ogallala Livestock. I’ve worked here for 16 years and since my husband has been
here since 1979, I’ve been affiliated around this barn for quite a few years. It’s been here since 1951 and it has been
the largest sale barn in the state of Nebraska for several years running, and continues to
grow. It employs several full-time people, and at least 15 to 20 more part time people
on sale days. It’s a place for the rancher and the farmer
to market their cattle, and we try to get the highest price for them so that they can
continue their business and grow. What I like best about coming to my job everyday
is, well I love the ranching and the animals. I love the people and I love the people in
the community because this business still likes to do business on a handshake. And that’s
the kind of people we work with.
