Watching a cattle auction sale in the desert?

My brother and nephew (and their family) raise Gelbvieh cattle, and have a cattle auction every year in February in North Dakota. The last couple of years they’ve had it livestreaming on the internet and we’ve been able to watch it. They video the cattle for sale, send out sale catalogs and people are able to buy over the telephone or internet or at the ranch. They do have a steel building that is set up that day as their auction barn and anyone is able to come for the sale and lunch. Now, February in North Dakota can be almost any temperature. A week before the sale was a blizzard and a couple of days before that they had 40’s. Lucky they had a nice day, in the 20’s only, but no storm. Both Curt and I grew up on farms and we showed cattle in 4-H and FFA, and helped my dad show cattle.
