Invitation to Bid
The Oglala Sioux Parks & Recreation Authority invites bids from bison producers to
purchase excess yearling bison. Potential bidders must have a truck and trailer ready
to pick up bison upon completion of our round ups in Slim Buttes, Yellow Bear and
South Pastures. 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
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. If the winning bidder is from
out of state, OSPRA will bring in a vet and the winning bidder will be responsible for
all costs to transport out of state, i.e., health certificates, bangs tags, etc.
Sealed bids should be mailed in before 4:30pm on September 30th, 2019
Sealed bids must be in a separate envelope marked:
Attention: OSPRA Executive Director.
2019 Yellow Bear, Slim Buttes, South Pasture 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, 8am to 4:30pm.
OSPRA will have up to 275 Yearling Bison for sale by bid. Weight will be determined
by OSPRA scale. Yearling weights will be expected to be between 400 and 650lbs.
The Oglala Sioux Parks and Recreation Authority representing the Oglala Sioux Tribe
has the right to accept or reject any and all bids
