Building the Legacy Sale has become Canadian Angus Foundation’s main fundraiser focus and has been very successful in generating resources to further our mission.

The Canadian Angus Foundation functions to preserve and expand the Angus breed for future generations through education, youth development, scientific and market research, and historical preservation and restoration. The Canadian Angus Foundation was incorporated in 1993 and is the charitable arm of the Canadian Angus Association.

The vision of the Building the Legacy concept is to allow the Foundation to build monetary resources. The Foundation uses its funds to provide opportunities for our youth, young breeders and membership to grow in the areas of leadership, marketing, networking, animal husbandry, genetic improvement and to learn about developing tools to enhance Angus production. The vision also includes the importance of preserving Angus history. By fostering these areas we can ensure our Angus history is not lost and will keep Angus as the breed of choice for the commercial beef sector and end users for years to come.

Our vision is being realized and because of generous donors we can support initiatives, scholarships, travel bursaries and learning opportunities. Through benevolent giving of donated livestock, semen, embryos, items and experiences, and the purchasing of the auction offerings, we at the Foundation have been able to put together a great suite of opportunities for our Angus membership.

Feature Lot – 2 Packages of 5 Straws - DMM International 54D, Donated by Miller Willson Angus – the Wilson Family and Glen Gabel Angus

Look at International 54D. He’s big. He’s mammothly muscled. He’s got a big, sound foot on him. He moves well. He’s a bull of today because he has the stoutness and rib capacity of 105A and the growth, dimension and mass of his International sire. International’s sire, Harvestor, set the selling standard in 2012 at $275,000. Harvestor’s dam (S A V Emblynette 5483) and full sister traded for $400,000 and $200,000 in 2013. Then International set the new record by selling for $400,000 in 2013. His dam is now over 10 years old and is as phenotypically correct as they come.

Feature Lot – 1 Package of 2 Embryos – Choice of Cudlobe Queen 38E x Poss Maverick and Cudlobe Eline 7E x Poss Maverick, Donated by Cudlobe Angus – David, Mat and Addy Bolduc

Poss Maverick was one of the highest used Angus bulls in the US in spring 2019. Owned by Semex and Belvin Angus, he was the $60,000 high-selling bull at Poss Angus sale in 2018. Maverick combines a unique package of carcass merit and phenotype rarely seen in the breed. Phenotypically, Maverick is deep ribbed, stout based, sound footed and brings an extra dimension of performance and growth. His genetic merit balanced high growth with a 141 YW EPD and high marbling of 1.51. His first calves have showcased early gestation and lower birth weights with the look and eye appeal expected. Only two animals in the CAA database combine 130 YW with 1.50 Marbling: Maverick and Eline 7E, one of the possible matings.

A choice of two outstanding Bennett TheRock daughters are available to be mated with Maverick. Cudlobe Eline 7E and Cudlobe Queen 38E both bring unique matings with their balanced carcass merit, strong growth that combine well with Maverick’s breeding potential. Both will provide exciting options.
