The Siler City sale (carolina stockyards) is the 3rd tuesday of every month and the Archdale sale is the first Saturday of every month. At both the horses start at 7. The tack sale usually starts at 5.

Not sure about any of these but the sales around here don't advertise as "kills sales". They first sell horses "by the pound" and then by the dollar amount. I'd call some of these places and what their procedure is on selling horses.

If they sell any horses by the pound then the sale must have killer buyers otherwise they would only be sold by the head.

Martin county horse auctionis not a kill sale . Not even sure they still operate.T&H sales a lot of chickens and goats don't think I have ever heard of a horse sold there. Carolina -Virginia & East Carolina do not sell horses they sell hogs and cattle. Most of the places in N.C. Listed sell hogs and cattle.

RE: Kill Sales

I don't really think there are sales that are specifically "Kill Sales" for horses. I used to host a yearly horse sale, and we would generally sell horses by the head and the ones that didn't have a lot of interest would end up being sold to the killer buyer. We always tried to have a killer buyer available to keep the prices up as much as possible, and I'm sure these sales do the same.

The horse slaughter issue is definitely controversial right now, but having killer buyers available makes all horses worth more money.

There are sales for kill horses. I called the livestock auction house here in great falls to see if they had any horse sales. The gal said no. They only have a "canner" sale after the cattle sell. I am planning on going and seeing if any good horse ends up in the mix.

Wow. I have lived near a lot of those.... scary stuff. I'd visit one, but I can't have a horse at the moment, sadly.

We have kill buyers at every auction house around here...doesn't seem to matter if they are rode in or run in loose. Those rode in have a much better chance but not always. That is why it is so important breeders breed only the best!
