In the past couple years, livestock producers have began supporting Canadian Foodgrains Bank through dairy and beef auction sales in places like Ponoka, Abbotsford and Saskatoon.
Sometimes cattle may be part of another sale, like the Canadian Foodgrains Bank Relief Auction in Osler, Saskatchewan.
Truckers will often donate their freight to bring the animals to the sale.
Local auctioneers donate their time and facilities during part of one of their regular sales so that all proceeds can forwarded.
Sales have raised between $30,000 and $100,000 per occasion.
For more information on how to organize a sale, please contact your regional coordinator.
