The 2021 Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation (FCSF) annual fundraising auction was held July 23rd and July 24th on DLMS.ca as a Farmgate timed online sale. Although we were not able to enjoy the regular face to face banquet and live bidding, the auction was a great success raising $65,147.00! Thank you to everyone that donated, purchased and bid to make this year a success. Over 170 people bid on and viewed the sale from across Canada, The United States and across the world.
As usual the highlight of this year’s auction was Lot 1, a yearling heifer donated by the 2021 Friend of the Foundation, The Crowe Bros of Gilbert Plains, Manitoba. The heifer was sold by Dutch auction and raised $11,440.00. The winner of the heifer was selected by random draw during a Facebook Live following the sale and the lucky winner was Pine Creek Simmentals of Alberta.
"The FCSF is especially thrilled with the tremendous support of our auction this year as we did not have one last year. The support that this fundraiser receives from around the world is tremendous and 2021 was no exception “stated FCSF President Ken Lewis. “Your generosity enables us to continue providing funding towards scholarships, bursaries and learning opportunities for youth in Agriculture, as well as education and research for the Canadian beef industry”.
The Manitoba Simmental Association and FCSF look forward to hosting next year’s Foundation Auction as part of the Canadian Simmental Association Convention July 21st -24th 2022, in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba .
