The cattle yard is the place where the local merchants buy domestic animals for slaughter. It is empty during the winter months. During the other months, it sees bi-weekly use. During harvest time, there is a fair that takes place here.
The cattle yards has a bad reputation as a meeting place for gangs at night. This is due in part to the openness of the yards. The Order of the Lion Guard routinely patrols this location at night for this reason.
