2016 Manitoba/Saskatchewan Auctioneers Championship

April 7, 2016

The Livestock Marketers of Saskatchewan proudly welcomes the 2016 Manitoba/Saskatchewan Auctioneers Championship, Saturday, April 30th 2016. This year's event will be held at the Cowtown Livestock Exchange Inc. in Maple Creek, SK.

The annual competition, which alternates between the two provinces, attracts auctioneers, order buyers, market operators and cattlemen from across the prairies. Twelve experienced auctioneers will bring all their speed, stamina, and livestock savvy to prove they are the best in the business.

The day starts at 10:00 am at the Cowtown Livestock Exchange Inc., located 1 mile east of Maple Creek, SK on Highway 724. It is open to the public and free of charge, so come down and enjoy the fast-paced entertainment! The competition includes ten drafts for each participant and one black box item, with the top six contestants being brought back for the final round. Once proving themselves in the sales ring, the first place winner receives a championship belt buckle, sponsored by Ivomec, and a paid trip to Brussels, Ontario in May to take part in the Canadian Livestock Auctioneering Championship.

Following the competition, a banquet will be held at the Cobble Creek Lodge, #201 Hwy 21, in Maple Creek SK. The festivities start at 5:00 pm and tickets to the steak supper are available for $20.00. You can register for the banquet in person, at the Cowtown Livestock Exchange Office, or call 1 - 800 - 239 - 5933 to reserve your seat.
