Profile - Auction Mart
The Ashern Auction Mart opened in 1957 and is owned co-operatively by nearly 1,000 members.
In 1975 they decided to expand and move the sales ring to the location they are at now, east of town near highway #6, across from the Ashern Golf Course. They added to the sales ring in order for it to manage a cattle marketing facility which is capable of selling up to 3,600 head at weekly Wednesday sales.
On sale days the Auction Mart employs 30+ employees. The Interlake Cattleman’s Co-op Association is a member owned co-operative with 800 active members and annual sales over $44 million.
