Cattle Auction

Lonely Planet review

The truly curious will want to venture into this live cattle auction, held every other Friday in a totally high-tech atmosphere inside the 1903 Fort Worth Livestock Exchange building. The heifers strut their stuff on flat-screen TVs and cowboy-hat-wearing ranchers make phone bids on the spot. Don't be intimidated by the fast-talkin' auctioneer: visitors are welcome to observe.
