Pipestone Livestock Auction Market
is open for business.
Pursuant to Governor Tim Walz’s Emergency Executive Order 20-20 and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, food and agricultural services are considered “critical services” and are exempt from the order.1
During this time, public access will be limited to buyers, sellers, and employees only.
We remain in compliance with the Minnesota Board of Animal Health’s recommendations for livestock market management.
As we closely monitor the impact and spread of COVID-19, Pipestone Livestock Auction intends to continue having sales, but we are taking action to reduce traffic in our office and the sales arena. This is strictly to increase the safety of our employees and customers.
We do ask that, for the safety of all concerned, please minimize the time you spend at the market and in the sale arena. Our staff will be available to unload your consignment so that you may return home to minimize exposure risk. You can also contact our office to discuss check delivery or pick up options if you would prefer not to wait for the mail. If you are feeling ill or have any symptoms of illness, please remain home. Please continue to check our website and social media for info on all sales and status of any special sale events.
We ask that you limit your time at the market to unloading chutes only. Please turn in all paperwork at the chutes. We apologize but we are limiting the arena seating to active buyers only. You can also contact our office to discuss pick up options if you would prefer not to wait for the mail.
We will be limiting the seating arena to buyers only. Please understand that bringing a guest, spouse or children will not be allowed as we need to follow the states recommendation for social distancing. We do have order buyers that can purchase livestock for you also.

Attention dairy producers:
Contrary to popular belief, Minnesota does not require a TB test prior to the sale. However, since there are buyers from states that do require a TB test often at our sales, it is recommended, but not required.
