COLUMBUS, Neb. -- An exotic animal auction took place this weekend in Platte Valley.

Community members from around the area had the opportunity to purchase different types of animals that were for sale in Columbus at Ag Park.

Some animals that were featured were yaks, cows, goats, different types of birds, and more.

Lucus Luckey, who was a main organizer for the auction, said the weekend had an overall great showing.

“Yesterday had a good turnout,” Luckey said. “Probably had 200 people here and market was pretty active.”

Sunday was the final day of the auction and featured some of the smaller scaled animals. The auction ran from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
