History

When Fred Kist Sr. leased the Morton county fairgrounds in 1942 to begin a tiny livestock auction, he probably had no idea it would grow to become a sprawling, modernized business that currently employees some 40 people.

The livestock business was located in South Mandan until 1956, when it relocated, moving to "The Strip" on Memorial Highway in Eastern Mandan. When the pavilion was officially opened 63 years ago, wire cutters were used to snip the barbed wire encircling the pavilion instead of the traditional scissors and ribbon. Since making the move, Kist has constructed a new roof over a portion of its yards, added a drive-thru chute for stock trailers, offers a free truck wash, implemented new vet facilities and installed a computerized ring scale.

Today, Kist Livestock, owned and operated by Fred & Bill Kist, is one of the largest livestock auction markets in North Dakota selling over7 million cattle since 1956.

In June of 2006, Kist Livestock Auction was awarded "The Granite Award" by the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber and the Excellence in Business committee, for being a cornerstone of the Mandan and regional economy since 1942.

Effective July 31, 2010, there are new paperwork requirements for all horses going to Canada for slaughter. You can download the form from here and fill them out before you deliver your horses here to market.

 

PLEASE READ IN DETAIL AND MAKE SURE YOUR FORMS ARE FILLED OUT IN DETAIL. USE BLUE INK ONLY OR FORMS WILL NOT BE VALID AND WILL BE VOIDED IN OFFICE AND HORSES WILL BE SOLD WITH “NO EID FORM”.

Horse Sale Questions to Answer

1. Have you owned them for at LEAST 6 months?
2. Have you given these horses any anitbiodic medicines in the LAST 6 months?

If you answered ‘NO’ to Question 1 and ‘YES’ to Question 2, DO NOT fill out the form. Tell the man at the chutes which horses DO NOT qualify for the forms -- he will document the pink barn ticket.

If you answered ‘YES’ to Question 1 and ‘NO’ to Question 2, FILL OUT the form as your horses qualify.

Canadian Form: PLEASE PRINT SO WE CAN READ THE FORM (BLUE INK ONLY)
Top right of form-First 6 lines==Name, Physical address (No Box #), Phone#, Primary location is: City, State & Zip,

Don’t fill in any markings or colorings as the buyers will do this.
Middle of form—Answer questions 1 thru 5. Date & sign form. Question #1 must have dates filled in(month & yr)—Do not use the words BIRTH OR PRESENT—THIS WILL VOID FORM. (USE BLUE INK ONLY OR FORM WILL BE VOIDED WHEN YOU GET HERE AND HORSE WILL BE SOLD WITH NO EID FORM.) EACH HORSE SELLING MUST HAVE ORIGINAL FORM WITH THEM---NO DUPLICATE FORM ALLOWED AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU FILL OUT FORM IN FULL ANSWERING EVERYTHING WE NEED. We are trying our best to keep the horse sales going for you and if you don’t cooperate with this paperwork, the buyers won’t bid and we will be forced to stop having sales. We apologize for this but have no choice. SORRY!!!!

Make sure when they get tagged at the chute that you write the correct backtag for each horse on the form. (Upper right hand corner).

**Bring them into the office IMMEDIATELY, so the girls on the block know if paperwork is in order.
If we don’t have the paperwork in office, it will be announced as such which may stop some buyers from buying.
