The Manual Upload Form can be found at the bottom left-hand side of most pages. Click the link and it will take you to a Manual Upload page that will provide further instructions.

Other than using the Manual Upload to add listings, only registered members can add these items to the website. If you are not registered please visit: www.livestock.directory/account-registration.
If you are already a member, these add links can be found at the top right-hand side of most pages. Hover over the down arrow to the right of the ‘profile’ link and a dropdown of options will appear. Here you will find a number of links, including those needed to add Listings, Classifieds, and Events.

Try to refresh the page . We have found that this will correct the issue most of the time. If that doesn’t work, click the back button on your browser window and try again.
If you continue getting a 404 page, please send us an email. Let us know what page your where trying to access and we will assess the situation.
6. How do I search for all listings by State?
This can be done by using the search bar at the top section of most pages. In the box labeled ‘in City/State (leave blank for all)’ type in the state you wish to search for. If there are any listings within that state, the State(Region) will appear in a dropdown. Click the State(Region) and it will take you to a search page, showing only listings from that state.
To find only Show Cattle from Ohio, for example, type Show Cattle in the ‘Search for’ box and Ohio in the ‘City/State’ box.
7. How do I search for other details like Members and Groups?
This can be done using the search icon on the right side of the main menu. Click the search icon to open up the search box. Once you start typing, the search box will start to find things that match what you’ve typed. If a match or matches have been found, a dropdown of options will appear below the search box. Click an item in the dropdown or press enter on the keyboard to continue to the search results page.
8. Can I try it out first? I’m interested, but not sure if Livestock.Directory is right for me.
Yes. If you’d like to trial a Farm Listing, we have an option for that as well. Once registered as a member, you can add a farm listing. The first step in adding a listing is to select the Package Type. One of the packages is a 30 day trial that costs only $2.50. This package includes all of the functionality of a full package, just with limitations on how many pictures you’re allowed to upload as well as the size of the description.
