CALGARY STAMPEDE July 6-15, 2018

Mock Auction @ the UFA Cattle Trail

Posted on June 4, 2018

The UFA Cattle Trail, located in the Nutrien Western Event Centre, is a live animal display of beef cattle, enhanced by informative and engaging displays about the industry and beef production program during the 10 days of the Calgary Stampede. In collaboration with our industry experts, we take visitors on an exciting journey through the product lifecycle of beef, exploring everything from the science of beef cattle breeding to understanding the different cuts of beef they see on their dinner table.

On Wednesday, July 11, 2018, our young auctioneers (Justin, Joe and Corey) will be demonstrating their bid-calling capabilties and informing the public about the auction method in selling livestock at this agricultural showcase.  If you get a chance to visit this event, stop by and say hello.  Better yet make your way through the crowd and let one of our guys grab your bid.  It is all in fun and meant to educate those who do not get an opportunity to see livestock sell at public auction.

Also take in the 30th anniversary of the International Livestock Auctioneer Competition.  The fastest mouths in the West will be at it again this year vying to win the $10,000 cheque that goes to the winner! The preliminary round will start on Friday, July 13, 2018 at 10:00AM at the Olds Auction Market. The final round will be held on the Stampede grounds in the Nutrien Western Event Centre on Satuday, July 14, 2017 from 11:30AM until 2:00PM.  Come cheer on Justin Perlich, who will be competing in this event.
