About Us

Wheeler Livestock Auction, Inc. has a long history as a family business dedicated to its customers and the community. Although changes have taken place over time, what will always stay the same is the personal and friendly service our customers have come to expect.

Burleigh and Doris Wheeler began Wheeler and Sons Livestock Auction in 1989. The family business has been successful and helped thousands of customers buy and sell livestock. The company was founded on integrity, honesty and a focus on excellent customer service....qualities which continue today.

Burleigh and Doris’ children, Byron Wheeler and his wife Angela, and Karla Wheeler Waters and her husband Tom, purchased the business in the fall of 2018, and began business as Wheeler Livestock Auction, Inc. Byron and Angela both grew up in St. Clair county on beef farms, while Karla and Tom operate a successful family row crop operation in Orrick, Missouri. Together their knowledge of livestock, their business and management experience, and their customer service focus, will bring efficiencies to the day to day operations and overall business to better serve you. Wheeler Livestock Auction wants your buying and selling experience to meet all your needs.

Byron, Angela, Karla and Tom hired their nephews Austin Shelby and Weston Shelby to help with the family business. Austin is the Livestock Manager, and Weston is the Office Manager. Rounding out the team are many familiar employees who have worked for the business for several years.
