Our livestock market started in 1946 as the Sugarcreek Livestock Auction, owned by a corporation of 10 stockholders. In 1947, the market set a record of total sales in the amount of $28,338.
In 1970, the auction was purchased by William Osborne. A 1971 article by the New Philadelphia TIMES-REPORTER stated over 1,000 head of livestock were sold, with 300 to 500 people in attendance at the once-monthly horse and livestock sale.
The auction was purchased by Leroy H. Baker and Leroy “Butch” H. Baker Jr. in December 1985 wherein the auction grew to a twice-weekly event.
Sugarcreek Stockyards debuted in April 2020, under the guidance of Brady Baker. Brady served many years under the guidance of his father, grandfather, and many others within the livestock community. Brady and his wife, Nikki, along with their 2 children enjoy farming, raising feeder cattle, and dairy replacement heifers. Brady is a past President of the local Cattleman’s Association and enjoys supporting 4-H, FFA, and youth pursuing a future in agriculture.
