2020 Convention

2020 LMAC Annual Meeting, Convention and Canadian Livestock Auctioneering Championship


Sept 10 – 13, 2020


Convention will be held at the Clarion Hotel in Brandon, Manitoba.
Auctioneer Competition will be held at the Heartland Livestock Services Virden, Manitoba

The Livestock Markets Association of Canada has awarded Manitoba the 2020 National Convention and Canadian Auctioneering Championships.  

The Manitoba Livestock Marketing Association will be the host for the 2020 event with convention central in Brandon Mb.  Heartland Livestock Services in Virden will host the auction competition.  Convention dates will be May 7 to 10, with the auction competition on May 8.   The convention is open for all interested parties to attend. 

Convention Chairman Rick Wright says that convention will draw approximately 250 market operators, auctioneers, order buyers and industry partners to the convention.   We expect over 35 auctioneers from across Canada to compete and there will be lots of local talent to cheer for.  The competition is free for the public to attend.  Producer’s that wish to consign cattle for the sale should book with Robin Hill at the Virden market as soon as possible as the market will be limiting the number of cattle for this special sale.   In the past the sale has been extra competitive with the extra buyers in attendance. 

Registration for both the conventioneers and auctioneers is available on line on the Convention 2020 tab on the LMAC website through Eventbrite.
