Buffalo Sale or Bust
Saturday after we got the new baby taken care of and in the barn, it was time to hook up the truck to the trailer and head to Passaic, MO to the MOKAN Livestock Market for the Buffalo Sale. It's been a few years since we've been to the Buffalo sale but this year we were able to make it fit into our schedule. And the cool thing, it didn't conflict with a horse show!
So either 2008 or 2009 was the first year my dad and I went to the Buffalo sale and we came home with 3 bull buffalo which we paid $300 a piece for roughly. This year... the cheapest one went for $950 and it was the only one we saw go for less than $1050. Holy cow! Buffalo prices are UP!
Needless to say, we didn't bring any Buffalo home with us, but baby squirrelly girly was able to attend not only her first buffalo sale but her first livestock sale at that.
