    The auction at Altoona, does anyone know what kind of animals they usually have? I know it starts at 9am, how late does it usually run? Thanks for any info, it's my first time going to this auction.[​IMG]

    Quote:I am not sure what kind of animals will be here as this will be my first 'small animal' sale there.
    I think Double -T mentioned smaller animals. Like chickens, rabbits, possibly smaller hoofed animals.
    I know it probably wasn't much help for you.
    I am hoping for sheep, and that ALWAYS needed chicken of some sort... [​IMG]

    So did anyone else make it to the sale today??
    I was there along with my mom, my hubby and youngest daughter.
    We bought a female pot belly pig....$10.00

    There really wasn't that many animals there today. Lots of buyers and the animals went for amazing amounts from what I am use to seeing a any sale...
    There were pygmy goats....I seen intack males going for $85 each. Females going for $60. Weird I thought as usally I see the females for a lot more than the males. And the prices were so high today. The last animal auction I was at the goats could hardly be given away, let alone get anything like the prices they got today.
    I guess it was a wonderful day for the sellers.

    I had a fun time.
    Ended up meeting someone there who had llama's at his house so we ran there and picked up 2 female llamas. So all in all it was a great day...

    I don't know addresses yet. I will try and talk to my mom tomorrow and see what she has for them.
    I know the bloomer and spring valley ones are at a persons house.
    The ladysmith one is out at the 'fair grounds' just outside of town.

    I will try and post the info tomorrow after I get ahold of her...
