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 – 1 Package of 3 Semen Straws - Red Six Mile Signature 295B, Donated by Rainbow Red Angus - Dave & Rhonda Bablitz

This is your opportunity to acquire some of the last semen ever to be available on the great Six Mile Signature. Signature has been praised by many astute cattlemen as one of the most impressive red Angus bulls to come along in a while. Coming from the foundation Selma Cow Family, his dam averaged an impressive 111 Weaning Index on her natural calves. Signature’s stunning presence and exceptional phenotype made him a crowd favorite as he was Junior Champion at Agribition and Denver.

Feature Lot – 2 Packages of 5 Semen Straws - Brooking Bank Note 4040, Donated by Canadian Sires - a division of Bohrson Marketing Services and Brooking Angus Ranch - The Morrison Family and
Rust Mountain View Ranch and Oberle Farms and Barry LaBatte

Semen is no longer on the market on the $125,000 phenom from Brooking Angus Ranch. He is a performance bull packed with maternal strength that will add value to both sons and daughters. His dam EA Rose needs little introduction as she is nearly impossible to fault. Bank Note daughters are carrying on his maternal lineage with perfect udders, volume, capacity and complete made.
Bank Note is an impressively sound individual that will add extra muscle, stoutness and rib capacity in a very attractive package.

Feature Lot – 1 Package of 5 Semen Straws - MJT Impressive, Donated by MJT Cattle Company, The Trefiak Family and South View Ranch, The Kaufmann Family

MJT Impressive 813F, the 2018 Canadian Angus Gold Show Bull Calf of the year, brings together two exceptionally strong animals. MJT Impressive is sired by the 2016 Canadian Angus Show Bull of the Year, MAF First Impression 4420. Used in many flushes, his progeny have been showing exceptionally moderate birth weights and then growing very efficiently and turning heads around the globe. Here at home we couldn’t be happier with his daughters in production as they are the type to build a cow herd. MJT Impressive’s dam, DMM Blackcap Essence 7Y, was the 2013 Canadian Angus Show Female of the Year. 7Y has proven herself to be a big time producer with the unique ability to pass along extra hip dimension and muscle shape that is complimentary to many breeding lines without sacrificing udder quality and femininity.

Feature Lot – Browarny Legacy Prints, Donated by ShowChampions
