Out and about with Alberta Beef Producers

The fall auction mart tour continued into December. I attended a variety of sales from bred females, regular pre-sorts, and even a few dispersals. It was a pleasure to reconnect with a few producers after the two-year hiatus. Such visits provided insightful perspective from a producer’s lens on some of the issues that our industry is currently facing.

Some of the locations we visited were:
