Liniers Livestock Auction Tour
Our final tour in Argentina took us to the Liniers Livestock Market located right on the boarder of Buenos Aires and one of its suburbs, Mataderos. Here we were able to walk the 84 acres stockyard and see the auctioneers and buyers in action. Only animals for slaughter are sold at Liniers, the only livestock market left in the country.
|At Liniers there are 2200 pens and 140,000 animals sold each month.|
|The auctioneer and the buyers move from pen to pen as the live action takes place. |
Each pen take no longer than 20-30 seconds to sell, and then they move on
to the next pen. There are 55 auctioneers and 550 buyers at the Liniers Livestock Market.
|After the auction all sold animals are marked with a number.|
