Happy May Everyone!!!
We had a great start to our auction season with the announcement of exciting new sales June 3 and 24th, plus the successful completion of the Odd and Unusual Animal Auction last week at the Westlock Ag Grounds.
Sale was highlighted with pheasants and ducks bringing near $125 each, baby lambs near $145 and rabbits selling strong as well. It was a great sale set up by the Babiuk Family and Heartland was glad to be the Auctioneers for the sale. The organizers had to start a bit late because of the lineup of animals that were still coming in at 10am. When we got going it was hot off the start and the record attendance was treated to a great sale. I picked up some rabbits and a mini-pony for April, she is very happy but wants me to sell some rabbits because she is learning they multiply fast!
Getting ready for June 3 in Athabasca for Orest and his family plus a super farm sale June 24 in Redwater for the late Mike Halun. There continues to be a need for auction companies and I see all of our peers are very busy as well. Keep in mind to support your small local companies. There is a lot of work out there for us all and no one works harder than your local auctioneers so support them with your attendance and sale opportunities.
See you in Athabasca June 3!
Be well, Nick Gulka
