With roots stretching back to the 1950s, the Bartow County cattle barn has operated under several owners and names. Earlier this month, the auction barn reopened as People's Livestock Market.

Owned by Haynie Cochran and Eddie Goss, People's Livestock Market will receive ongoing upgrades and investment as sales resume. After three weeks of work, which saw new paint, seats, stairs and railing in the auction arena, the sale barn reopened two weeks ago and will continue with what the owners claim is the only Saturday cattle sale in the state.
