Special Bred Cow and Bred Heifer Sale

Along with Weigh Up Cattle

About Us

Burke Livestock Auction is a family owned livestock marketing center in Burke, South Dakota. We are located in the South Central part of the state, along Highway 18. Cattle sales are held weekly on Saturdays.

The business was started by Herris Lambley and family in 1967, in the small town of Burke - with today's population peaking at around 800 (on a good day). We pride ourselves in supporting local businesses in our community, which have been growing and expanding for the past 50 years.

In the fall of 2014, Herris sold the auction facility to his son, Donivan, and two grandsons, Chisum and Dillon. Today, the business is operated by the three Lambley men, along with their families and employees.

Approximately 35,000 of south central South Dakota and north central Nebraska's finest feeder and breeding cattle are marketed through the Burke Livestock barn annually. Our regular sale day is Saturday. Every one of our sales are managed with pride on the foundation of honesty and hard work. We look forward to working WITH YOU or FOR YOU in the future! Thanks for your business!
