    I believe you are referring to Lolli Brothers which us in Macon, MO. They have a website if you google them. They have a lot of really neat exotic animal auctions. When I was in college I worked at the Days Inn in Kirksville as a bartender (about 30 miles north of there) and once a year we had some people that stayed there who owned a zoo in New York and went to the auctions there. It was always so cool to hear about the animals they had bought- kangaroos, water buffalo, zebras, all kinds of neat animals!

    Quote:X2 At one time it was the largest exotics auction in the USA, haven't been in years, but I'm sure it's still huge. They have a warm room to and every kind of poultry you can thik of.

    We owned an exotic animal ranch for years and Macon was one of the better auctions. There is (Or was) one in Fruitland, Missouri too, just north of Cape, a web search should locate it if it's still going.
