If you live in a rural area, there is a chance that a local Livestock Auction is happening near you.

Livestock Auctions (also called "sale barns") are places where livestock producers and buyers come together.  Its a great place for the farmer to sell any extra livestock he has for profit.  It is also a great opportunity for the average "Joe" to get his hands on some animals (usually at a fair price).

The internet, local papers or your extension office can probably direct you to the nearest Livestock Auction (if there's one near).

Sale Barns can be fun.  There are the animals.  There are the friends.  There are the snacks.
