                                    Yellow Bear Pasture OST Member Buffalo Yearling Invitation to Bid

The Oglala Sioux Parks & Recreation Authority invites bids from Oglala Sioux Tribal Members who reside on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to purchase excess yearling bison. OSPRA will have up to 100 Mixed-male and female Yearling Bison for sale by bid. Weight will be determined by OSPRA scale. Yearling weights will be expected to be between 400 and 700 pounds. Minimum bid will be $1.00 per pound. Potential bidders must have a truck and trailer ready to pick up bison upon completion of our round ups in Yellow Bear Pastures. The highest bidder will be contacted before start of Yellow Bear roundup. Once buffalo go through our chute and are weighed, they are the winning bidder’s responsibility. Also, when buffalo are going through the chute our ear tags will be cut off. If the winning bidder has ear tags we will tag the buffalo for them. OSPRA staff will assist in loading buffalo. If winning bidder cannot pick up bison upon completion of our roundup, arrangements must be made with OSPRA to hold bison for them and yard fees will be assessed. OSPRA will not be responsible for any injured or death of buffalo while they are in the pens.

Sealed bids should be mailed in before 4:30pm on November 24, 2021

Sealed bids must be in a separate envelope marked:

Attention: OSPRA Executive Director

“2021 OST Member Yellow Bear Yearling Buffalo Bid”

Bids will then be reviewed, recorded, and the winning bidder will be contacted.

Interested parties may contact the OSPRA office Monday - Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm.
