Stockyards City received its name because it's home to the Oklahoma National Stock Yards, one of the largest feeder and cattle markets in the entire world. Every Monday, the public can attend live cattle auctions, and I simply couldn't pass up the chance to go to a live cattle auction during my trip. After all, where else would I have the chance to do something like this? That's just one of the many beauties of Stockyards City-- you'll see and experience things you can't find anywhere else in the country.
