LITTLE ROYAL ALL-BREED HEIFER SHOW & SALE
FRIDAY, MARCH 24, 2023


The Little Royal Show was started in the late 1960s by the Fort Macleod Auction Market. It was a spin off of the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto of which Ken Hurlburt was auctioneer. Originally held during the Midnight Days in Fort Macleod, the Little Royal was a fat steer show held in the parking lot of the auction market, with many local ranchers and farmers participating.
In more recent years, Bryan Mackenzie (Brylor Ranch) put on the Little Royal Show & Sale featuring Red Angus influenced heifers.

We are very proud of this group of Red Angus Simmental Cross heifers. We have found this cross of beef breeds works well in Southern & Northern Alberta and all sectors of the industry: cow calf, feedlot and packing.  

We will not buy a bull whose weaning weight was not in the top 10% of their herd. Years of selecting for calving ease (not birthing weight) has enabled us to have a worry free calving season. We always select our replacement heifers for quality (length, thickness and muscling). So if you are looking for above average performance and quality, we believe these heifers will be a good fit for you
