The Redfield Horse Sales were started in approximately 1967 and were held semi annually though out the years. These grew to be one of the larger horse auctions in the Upper Midwest. The fall sale has normally been a 2 day sale with draft horses and equipment one day and light horses the following day.
We will NOT be holding an April 2012 horse sale.
