Livestock Auctions: An Essential Service
Posted on May 14, 2020
We remain open and are here to assist you in marketing your livestock and farm machinery.
As a part of Alberta’s food supply chain, livestock auction markets are deemed an essential service.
We have always strived to keep our facility as clean as possible, for our clients, and their cattle. We will continue to provide the highest level of maintenance and cleanliness. We commit to providing a clean and sanitized environment for our buyers and consignors.
We strongly encourage our staff and guests to exercise social distancing as outlined by health officials. When at our facility, we ask that you respect the personal space (a minimum of six feet) of others and follow the guidelines set out by the Government of Alberta.
If you are an active bidder we welcome your attendance.
We are reminding our bidders that they can view a real-time broadcast of any of our feeder or breeder cattle sales. This service is provided by the Canadian Live Internet Exchange (CLIX).
We are accepting bids by phone either prior to, or during, each sale.
As a consignor who is delivering livestock to the market, we ask that you allow our staff to unload your trailer and exit the premise as soon as possible. We will mail out cheques on the day following the auction, unless other arrangements have been made.
At this time, Honkers Café is open weekdays, with limited seating, as well as for take-out orders.
This information and the requirements by various levels of government may change rapidly. For this reason we ask that you continue to monitor our webpage (perlich.auction) on a regular basis.
We are here to serve you.
