These are images from the auction yard. The holding pens do get full when a auction is about to happen, these of course are the cattle. Horses and other livestock can be seen here when events are going to happen.
We used to hear the auction animals and the goings on at night here in town. Our town is growing however so it is not as peaceful as it once was. Though you can still hear the coyotes heading to the auction yard at times even with the noise of a growing town.
This auction yard has grown by a lot! Still known as the Madras Oregon auction . As you can see by the images the animals are fed real well!
