GREAT FALLS, Mont. – The Western Livestock Auction here is up for sale at a listed price of $1.65 million.
The auction yard’s out-of-town owners are looking to retire from the business.
The yard has been on the market about three weeks, said Richard Smith, one of the owners who lives in Stevensville
The partners also own the auction yard is Missoula, which they are also selling.
“It’s time to downsize,” Smith said, adding that he and the other owners are at an age where they want to fish more and work less.
