Video livestock auction pioneer Buddy Jeffers died Monday in a car crash. The co-founder of Superior Livestock Auction was killed in the accident near Old Glory, Texas. He was 75.


Jeffers may have suffered a heart attack while driving from his home in Ennis, Texas to his ranch, according to the Livestock Marketing Association,. His car left the road and hit a tree.


In 1986, Jeffers and Jim Odle merged their markets to form Superior, which markets cattle every two weeks via satellite television.


A scholarship has been established as a memorial to Jeffers.
