MISS RODEO CANADA 2023
Mackenzie Skeels grew up with her family at Anchor D Simmentals just outside of Rimbey, where she is the fourth generation on this farm. Her first cow was given to her and from there she has bought, traded, and raised cattle expanding her herd to 35 head. Her leadership roles through her 12 years of 4-H and the Young Canadian Simmental Association (YCSA), began her journey of promoting the western way of life.
Some highlights for her are winning five national aggregate titles with the National YCSA and competing in the American Junior Simmental Association shows in 2016 and 2018 as the representative from Canada. Furthermore, competing in regional level public speaking with 4-H and being selected to attend the 2018 4-H Canadian Citizenship Congress in Ottawa at Parliament. Skeels also had the honour of being crowned the 2017 Rimbey Rodeo Queen, 2019/2020 Sundre Rodeo Queen and Miss Ponoka Stampede 2022. Mackenzie is thankful for the experiences and knowledge each title has given her.
With her Media Studies and Professional Communications diploma, and current job with Direct Livestock Marketing Systems, Mackenzie is utilizing the skills she has developed to further her passion and involvement in the rodeo and agriculture industry. She plans on continuing to bridge the gap between urban and rural in various ways including educating people on where their food comes from, bringing people back to their western roots alongside connecting them to the original extreme sport of rodeo.
Mackenzie is extremely thankful and excited for the opportunity of being crowned the 2023 Miss Rodeo Canada. Skeels looks forward to all the wonderful experiences that she gets to be a part of this year, as well as is honored to be a part of representing Canadian Professional Rodeo on a National and International level.
