Nick’s Blog – February 10, 2021

Happy winter everyone! It’s been a great last 6 months of weather in general for most of the province. We are in the middle of a cold snap but the end is in site. Soon spring will be here and we will be so happy to warm up!

April is finishing grade 12 in Edmonton; the lambing is done at home and we are proud to announce some exciting auction news with you.

The Christensen Estate Auction has some amazing ag-pieces that are must have’s, some items have had no use in 30 plus years. Great bins, 4440 JD tractor, haying equipment as well as the peach of the sale, the Case Back-Hoe, it’s a beauty with only 500 hrs.

March will see a Cattle Equipment and Lumber sale in Acheson, consignments are welcomed. Close to 400 lots so far.

April and May will see the return of our Spring Sale to Westlock, the 10th Annual Spring Consignment Sale in conjunction with the 2nd Birds, Bunnies and More Sale. Plus a huge land and machinery sale for the Late Robert Cardy goes May 5-15th near Abee.

We have some other sales in the works plus we are hoping to bring back our customer appreciation party in the fall if conditions allow us.

This year, our tenth year of business, we dedicate it to the life and memory of my father Tony, who passed in May of 2020. My relationship with dad was always polarizing to many. The most important take away from my time with dad was with how he chose to finish his life on earth. His time helping with the business, spending time with his son and grandkids as well as his chatter with clients, will be missed. I have so many great stories of dad in my heart and look forward to sharing some laughs with you in the future. Rest in peace dad. At least he will not drive mom nuts by bringing stuff home from a sale!

The team and I at Heartland wish you a great 2021 and we hope to see you very, very soon. Wear your mask, help our seniors and stay warm!
