Stanley Stout

Stanley E. Stout
Nov. 23, 1941 - April 30, 2006

Stanley E. Stout, Cottonwood Falls, Kan., died from an aortic aneurism Sunday afternoon, April 30. Stout was a premier livestock auctioneer and seedstock marketeer. He started in the purebred livestock auction business in 1975 and has sold numerous sales throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Stout was raised on a Flint Hills Ranch in Cottonwood Falls, Kan. He attended Kansas State University and then went to auction school in Bryan, Texas. After graduating from auction school, he showed and managed a group of Herefords in Japan for the American Hereford Association. Upon returning to the states, he joined the Western Livestock Journal as a field representative covering the state of Texas. He then joined the Drovers Journal and covered Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. From the field, he moved to the main office and was in charge of the field staff. He then went to work for the Charolais Banner as director of advertising, and then entered the sales management business with the North American Auction Company. In 1975 he started Stanley E. Stout Auction Services.

Funeral services will be at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 4 at the Flint Hills Rodeo Arena in Strong City, Kan. Following the burial there will be a barbecue luncheon at the rodeo grounds. The funeral home is Brown-Bennett-Alexander, Cottonwood Falls, Kan., (620) 273-6311.

Stanley was very active in the American Royal Livestock Show and served as the chairman of the livestock committee. The American Royal has established the Stanley E. Stout Supreme Heifer Memorial Scholarship in his memory. Memorials may be sent to the American Royal in care of the Stanley E. Stout Memorial, 1701 American Royal Ct.

Stout's sudden death leaves a tremendous void in the industry. The "Colonel" was a legend among livestock producers everywhere and touched countless lives throughout the thousands and thousands of miles he traveled. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Stout Family and Stanley's family of friends in the industry.
