I graduated from the Western Canadian School of Auctioneering in Calgary on October 3, 1998.
We had our first machinery consignment sale on the farm May Long Weekend in 1999 and the next on September Long Weekend. Since then we have made them annual sales.
Last spring was the largest ever with just under 400 consignors and just under 6,000 people attended. We have developed the sale yard into a permanent facility. We also have about 20 farm sales aroundthe Drayton Valley area annually. From October to March in the farm sale off season I work with Transcon Livestock, Bohrson Marketing & Bouchard Livestock. They manage Purebred Simmental sales, selling bulls in the spring
and females in the fall. I have worked these sales across Canada, from Abbotsford, British Columbia to Chester Basin, Nova Scotia and many sales in between, but mostly in Alberta.
I really enjoy the auction business and love to meet so many great people in many different industries.
