On Wednesday, November 18, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and Maxwell Wildlife Refuge will be holding a Buffalo Auction. This event will be hosted at the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge, 2565 Pueblo Road in Canton and will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will finish at 12:00 p.m.
Approximately 50 buffalo from the Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s herd at the Maxwell Refuge will be sold, consisting of:
13 two-year-old bulls
2 cow/calf pairs
10 yearling heifers
4 yearling bulls
8 heifer calves
8 bull calves
TERMS: Cash (personal check will be accepted if accompanied by a notarized authorization letter from the issuing bank). Buffalo over one year old will be brucellosis and tuberculosis tested and accompanied with a health certificate. Heifer calves will be vaccinated for brucellosis and certificates will be issued. The Department reserves the right to reject any or all bids. Buyers must pick up buffalo the day of the sale or make arrangements with the refuge manager prior to the sale. Animals become buyer’s responsibility upon settlement on sale day. Load out assistance is available until dusk. Stock racks and trailers should be covered or lined; buffalo transport better in darkened conditions.
