2022 Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation Auction is Huge Success!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 28, 2022

Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, Canada – Three years in the waiting proved to be well worth the required patience for the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation (FCSF) to finally host an in person live auction again through the amazing hospitality provided by the Manitoba Simmental Association.

Portage La Prairie, was a fantastic location for this year’s Canadian Simmental Association’s (CSA) National Convention and AGM; and the FCSF annual auction was once again a highlight of the weekend’s activities.

More than 200 people from across Canada gathered for the annual event which took part July 23rd following the Canadian Simmental Association Annual meeting and banquet. The 2022 FCSF auction raised a total of $123,995, our second highest auction total to date. This total included $50,000 that was raised on the lot 1 bred heifer donated by Everett Olson of Downhill Simmentals.

During the 2022 Young Canadian Simmental Association’s (YCSA) National show which was held the final day of the Convention, the FCSF Directors presented $15,000 from the auction proceeds to the YCSA for ongoing youth activities. The FCSF also donated $5,000 to help financially support YCSA members with travel costs to get to Manitoba.

"The Foundation is thrilled with the success of our 2022 auction, what a great way to celebrate the Simmental breed and our youth after not being able to have a live auction for two years" stated newly elected FCSF President Garth Rancier. “The funds collected will continue to be used for youth development, education, research, scholarships and bursaries. Thank you to all the buyers, donators, volunteers and staff that made this year another amazing success!”

The FCSF would like to thank retiring Board of Director Brian Bouchard for all his commitment to the Foundation over the years. Newly elected Lynette Hoegl of Lloydminster, SK will join the Foundation Board along with Garth Rancier, Killam, AB who was elected President, Scott Matthews, Canton De Hatley, QC 1ST Vice President and Mark Shologan, Westlock, AB elected as Treasurer.
