Yep, as mentioned previously, livestock are (almost ?) always sold via
auction. Have a look at
https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2082183102010269 which
shows a little bit of the auction process in the background.

Another description of it is:

Yes, that's a yard where stock is held. A sales yard is like this

but not quite the same.

I'm still looking for the answer regarding the ratio of auction vs.

Not easy to find, but here's some info:
https://www.farmanddairy.com/news/how-to-understand-the-livestock-markets/308078.html
which seems to suggest that most are sold by auction?

Australian info says the same thing:

Thanks
