We scurried to find our 38 yearlings, which had been placed in multiple pens. Steers were in one area of the sale yards and Heifers in another.
Lots of people were attending and the standard of the yards and how they operated was excellent. A different auctioneer managed a line of pens, with each pen only taking a minute or so to negotiate a sale price.
The cross section of available cattle was interesting with many breeds and types of cattle being auctioned. We thought our yearlings were tiny, until we saw some pens with young calves. We just wanted to take all the little ones back with us.
