The origin of Foothills Livestock Auction has a long history in the town of Stavely, Alberta.
The market sits on 10 acres of land and was built in 1965. Among the numerous owners of the market are Blair Vold (Vold, Jones & Vold Auction Co.) and Rob Bergevin, who partnered in 2004 to establish what is today a strong and vibrant business focusing on customer service.
Rob Bergevin brought his extensive expertise to the market operations. He began his auctioneering career back in 1988 and worked with the Calgary Stockyards before moving on to sell in other venues. Since then, along with operating the market, he serves as the president of the Alberta Auction Markets Association, and vice president of the Livestock Markets Association of Canada.
2014 saw Rob and his wife Sharon purchase sole ownership of the market...now known as Foothills Auctioneers Inc. Rob and Sharon live in the Stavely area and have been active members of the community and surrounding area.
