Buffalo Auction In Canton

KSCB News - November 12, 2012 8:19 am

Kansas wildlife officials are auctioning off surplus buffalo from a herd at a refuge in south-central Kansas.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says the buffalo auction is planned for Wednesday at the Maxwell Wildlife Refuge in Canton. The department’s website says that nearly 100 buffalo from the department’s display herd at the refuge will be sold.

The annual auction typically attracts spectators and buyers from all over the country. The department says prices paid for the iconic animals range from several hundred dollars to several thousand, depending on market demand and the animal.

The auction will include 25 adult cows and 22 bull calves. The refuge corrals are located in the Canton area, about 30 miles northwest of Wichita.
