Fall Feeder Sales Start Next Week

It's hard to believe that September is already here. At the office in Calgary, the staff are still wondering when summer will arrive on our doorstep while Eastern Canada is once again in the grips of a heat wave and Maritimers are bracing for the arrival of Hurricane Earl. But a sure sign that summer is over is the arrival of the fall Angus sales, which start on Friday, September 10 at Winnipeg Livestock Sales and continue through Thursday, December 9 at Sekura Auctions Ltd. in Drayton Valley. We even have a few spring sales in March and April. All the sale dates are listed on our events calendar on our website.

The Canadian Angus Association has worked hard to develop relationships with auction markets and offer Angus sales across the country. In just 10 years, we have gone from 5 sales to 157! Check the list of sale dates and you are sure to find one near you.

These sales are an excellent market for your Angus-tagged cattle. We are the only beef breed with a tag that guarantees breed genetics. Only Angus tags qualify your commercial cattle for Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed beef programs. Licensed participants will be present at this fall's Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed sales seeking Angus-tagged cattle for their beef programs.

The Canadian Angus Association will also have field representatives at nearly all sales. When you attend a sale, be sure to say hello.
