Foothills Auctioneers


The Stavely Auction Market has a long history in the town of Stavely, Alberta.  It sits on 10 acres of land and was built in 1965.  Rob and Sharon Bergevin along with Blair Vold (Vold, Jones & Vold Auction Co.) partnered in 2005 to establish what is today, a strong and vibrant business focusing on customer service in the cattle and horse marketing industry.  2014 saw Rob and Sharon purchase sole ownership of the market, now known as Foothills Auctioneers Inc.  The facility is in great shape but needed some renovations in the summer of 2017 to expand our pens to service the growing numbers of customers.  In this renovation we took down the old race horse barn and re-purposed all the wood through 2 Birds Furniture in Okotoks.  We are very proud of the history of the Stavely Auction Market and strive to continue serving our producers from Stavely and the surrounding areas, hopefully giving them an Auction Market they can be proud of.
