Jerry and Helen Marie Varner are proudly celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Mid America Stockyards in Bristow, Oklahoma. Mid America is a fourth generation owned and operated livestock auction featuring a cattle sale every Saturday as well as biweekly horse sales. Mid America averages 1100 cattle weekly with buyers from 5 to 7 states being represented. On any given Saturday you can find as many as 20 family members manning different positions during the cattle sale as well as operating the café and farm center, with the youngest members cleaning tables and learning to meet customers.
Jerry and Helen Marie along with their three sons and two daughter-in-laws, Sam, Melody, John, Jeff and Cheryl and several grandchildren are involved with the daily operations.
When customers come to Mid America for the first time they are our guest but when they come after that they are family. This is the motto that has kept Mid America a family treasure.
