Brussels Livestock, a Division of Gamble & Rogers Ltd., is located on County Road 16 about 1 kilometer east of Brussels, Ontario.
Serving Ontario as a full-service livestock auction house
Since 1953, Brussels Livestock has been one of Ontario’s largest and most trusted livestock auction houses. For almost 70 years, Brussels has been connecting sellers and buyers, ensuring mutual success and fair market value for their livestock. The company came under the ownership of Mark and Cindy Ferraro in 2011.
Brussels Livestock hosts three weekly sales, with additional sale days in the busy spring and fall seasons. In addition to its regular slate of services, the auction house hosts Vaccinated Calves & Yearling sales and the Huron County 4H Show and Sale on Thanksgiving weekend. Arranging buyers to buy their products is a way to encourage the younger generation to stay in the industry. Seeding the next generation of livestock producers is an important consideration in a time when many younger people are leaving the industry behind.
As the largest auction house in Ontario, Brussels Livestock has the capacity to accommodate thousands of cattle; the facility’s primary pens can hold up to 3,500-head of cattle while the feed pens can hold another 3,000. The auction house also features a large sales ring, government-inspected scales, buyer support from Canadian and U.S. packers, veterinary inspection of cattle and large and small pens, allowing each consignor’s cattle to be housed separately.
