Goats and Auction Helpers - Enumclaw Sales Pavilion - Enumclaw WA

Helper: noun: a person who helps someone else.

:  :  :


in Enumclaw WA

at the Enumclaw Sales Pavilion,

two boys,

whose father is employed as a livestock auction assistant and handler,

talk during the sale of some small goats.

:  :  :

Both of these boys sat out as helpers

as soon as the smaller animals were auctioned off

and the larger stock like the cattle

came in the sales ring.

:  :  :

The auction only lasted an hour,

as opposed when my family came here during the 1950s and 60s

to purchase calves and piglets,

the auction then was an all day affair.

:  :  :

Today in the Puget Sound region

there is a much smaller community

of farmers buying


selling stock.
