Buyer Numbers: All livestock, horse, tack, and hay auction buyers should apply for a buyer number prior to bidding in the livestock office. It is $1.00 (cash only) to purchase a number for the first time or to get a new number card after our two-year cycle ends. For lost buyer cards, it is $2.00 to replace your card. You must be 18 years of age and have a state issued photo I.D. and valid phone number to obtain an auction buyer number. Please show your buyer number card when making purchases and when making payments.

Terms of Sale: The Livestock Office accepts cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. There is a 5% buyers premium on purchases, which will be waived if you pay with cash or check. Purchases not paid for the day of the auction will be assessed a $5.00 service charge.

All horses purchased should be picked up immediately following the sale.
