Thirty-five? Thirty-five? Would you bid a thirty-five? Who's gonna bid it at a thirty-five dollar bid?

The fastest mouths in the west will be at it again this year during the International Livestock Auctioneer Competition in the Nutrien Western Event Centre vying to win the big cheque that goes to the winner!

Competitors will be judged on rhythm, clarity, voice control, and livestock knowledge, as well as their ability to spot bids and conduct a sale.

Finalists will be required to sell brand consignment cattle and one Black Box item. You are welcome to get involved in the fun and excitement by bidding on any black box items that catch your eye.

Proudly presented by the Calgary Stampede Livestock Competitions Committee
