Assiniboia Livestock Auction doesn’t compete with other auction marts, we compete with ourselves: always striving to improve our own score and performance year after year. We work diligently to earn your business and trust, putting time, effort and resources into controlling livestock shrink and stress, and to make the market process easy for all involved.

Most auctions will toss a few bales of hay in an overhead feeder, or simply toss it on the ground for the livestock to scoop up. While better than nothing, it’s not much better. That’s not how we run things. Assiniboia Livestock Auction was the first in Canada to feed and water cattle before sale time, and remain possibly the only auction feeding tub ground hay, so that your cattle will eat and digest more.We don’t flinch at turning some profit back into good feed, tub grinders and bale feeders to keep the health and weight on your cattle for the buyers. In turn, the buyers put up good money, knowing they’re getting well-cared-for livestock.

Our job is to:

  • Promote the Livestock Auction as an integral part of the Livestock Marketing business.
  • Promote fair and open competition.
  • Maintain the auction method of price discovery.
  • Promote the general welfare of the members in regards to business, social and other activities pertaining to the Livestock Marketing business.
  • Promote the humane handling of all livestock consignments.
  • Ensure a safe working environment for all employees, buyers and consignors.
  • Provide factual, accurate and honest treatment to all contributors and buyers.
  • Work in co-operation with all government bodies at all levels.
  • Accurately describe and represent all animals for sale and provide true and accurate weights on all sales.

This willingness to invest some of our money, combined with our low selling fees, means more dollars in your pocket. This is just one of the reasons more people sell their cattle at Assiniboia Livestock Auction than any other market in Saskatchewan.

Our work ethic is well known and appreciated by those we do business with. It’s another reason why we’re one of the top auctions in the country. Here’s an outline of that ethic. We think you’ll agree with our mandate.

Not content to rest on our laurels, Assiniboia Livestock Auction is moving on, expanding its horizon. The Online Pre-sort Auction Sales are the next step of our evolution.

We’ve combined the latest innovative technology with our established reputation and past performance in the cattle industry to create another way we can ensure that buyer and seller needs are being met.

Utilizing RealAudio technology, we will broadcast our auctions live over the Internet. Not only will you be able to listen to the pre-sort auction sale as it happens live at our sale yard, but, once registered, you will also be able to take part in that auction, bidding and buying top quality cattle.
