Report info

​​​​​Submit your sales report to Agricorp according to the schedule below. Report actual sales for eligible cattle only and do not report a sale more than once. If the animal is enrolled in multiple categories, the program will automatically calculate all category payments based on the final sale weight. You must report your sales even if you have no sales within the reporting period either by contacting Agricorp or indicating zero sales on the report.  ​
