Farmers say they plan to rebuild the Fauquier Livestock Exchange after a fire demolished the complex last month.
The exchange's chairman, Ross A. Poe, says the board has voted to rebuild, although the cost could top $1.3 million.
The northern Virginia market had been in existence for nearly 50 years before a fire destroyed it on Sept. 27.
