Don Oberg is a professional auctioneer from Lacombe, Alberta, who graduated top of class in 1993 from the Canadian Western School of Auctioneering in Calgary. Don sold at several central Alberta livestock auction markets as many as five days a week until 2010. He also operated his own auction company for many years until 2006 at which time he became too busy selling purebred livestock sales across Canada. Don is co-owner of Barnburner Productions, an auction company specializing in Charity/Fundraiser Events.
In 1998 Don was the inaugural winner of the Jim Raffan Memorial Award voted on by fellow auctioneers as most congenial/professional. Don also became the first two-time winner of this award in 2003, the same year he was named Canadian Champion livestock auctioneer. Don is a 5-time top ten finalist at the International Livestock Auctioneering Championships. He is also a six time consecutive qualifier for the World Livestock Auctioneering Championships.
I am very excited and honoured to be selected to be the auctioneer for this prestigious event! I continue to be amazed at how hard this committee works every year to assemble such an incredible line-up of horses to showcase and offer for sale. Congratulations and â€œHats Offâ€ to all organizers /consignors.
Come on out and enjoy the Fall Classic weekend!
Providing Professionalism with Energy and Integrity!!
