Canadian Bison Association Auction A Great Success

A total of 67 bison consigned by 14 bison producers from Western Canada were sold by video auction at the Canadian Bison Association’s 25th National Show and Sale in Regina.

The 2017 sale average of $7,935 is comparable to the 2016 sale average of $8,023. Although bull prices were marginally below last year’s level, heifer prices averaged $9,350 compared to the $6,356 average of 2016. “We are very please with the results. The heifer prices reflect an interest in growing the industry” Miller added.
